great park, great atmosphere

I was walking through the park on a sunny afternoon. People were everywhere in the park, playing around, doing BBQ and enjoying being outside. It was a great atmosphere.

We went during Smorgasburg in the park. Bring cash, the food is great. Smorgasburg is every Sunday afternoon until mid to late August. Very crowded, but worth it. Try the local bar b que and oysters. The park was created by landscape architects, Olmsted and Vaux.

A very relaxing way to spend a few hours, wondering through the park, passing by the lakes and streams as well as forested areas. Very spacious and well laid out, with plenty of walking and bicycle tracks. The scenery is wonderful. A great... More

I love Prospect Park! I spend a lot of time here. After work it is great for jogging or taking your dogs, you should check their website but there are a few off leash areas for dogs to get good exercise. The park is also ideal for lounging, reading books, or enjoying a picnic. There are many things to do... More

All year round ppl are there as early as 5 am. There are plenty different entrances to the park, as well as diff patchy grass areas where u... More

One of the best city parks ever. Olmsted planned like Central Park but hilly & much more fascinating. Enter through Grand Army Plaza arch & experience all the beauty of the park.
