Great green oasis in the middle of ultra urban!

Great place for a day in the sun for everyone. There are paved, shaded walks or take to the green fields. This good ole Texas boy was able to relax for the first time in days.

You don't have to travel to Central Park to see and expanse of greenery, come to Prospect Park for the grass, the trees, or escape from the outside world. Whether ice skating at the rink, listening to music at the bandshell or a vista to the Zoo, we have it all in Brooklyn.

I frequently run in this park and I'm always struck by the beauty of it. There are so many hidden gems in the park - areas that are tucked away behind shrubbery - old fountains and benches, stone staircases, doggie trails. It's amazing!

Very large, accessible from many different entrances, very informal. Accommodates any size group to barbecue thang out. Great for biking and rollerblading and jogging. Multicultural.

I walk this park nearly every morning on the walking path - takes me 45 mins. There's so much to see in this park. About 15 ago when my son was small, we came across a secret garden with a small pond. As of today, I'm still trying to locate this area. I will not venture within the wooded areas... More

This was one of Brooklyn's many surprises. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted after he completed Manhattan's Central Park, it is a delightful public landscape. Kid-friendly, it is adjacent to the Park Slope neighborhood and its many young families.

Very pretty park. Have run and walked here several times over the past year while visiting friends. It's pretty in every season. It's cool to see the swans by the boat house. It's not a place I would go out of my way to see but it is nice if you are here for a while or visit the city... More

This park is absolutely wonderful. large enough to accommodate so many activities - running, cycling, baseball and just strolling around the beautiful landscaped grounds which have such a huge variety of landscapes from the majestic lake to woodlands and huge areas of gently undulating lawns ideal for ball games, dog walking and picnicking. I was very impressed that that the... More
