Yes on the East Side of the Prospect Park. Worth a look

Worth a look. They try to give the public some environmental education and have activities for the children. One of the better locations in Prospect Park.

What a perfect spot to locate the Audubon Center. A visit here may be combined with visits to the zoo, the carousel, and Lefferts Homestead to make a splendid afternoon with kids.

if you happen to be strolling through the East side of the park and haven't seen it yet, it's a cool little detour. Didn't get to catch the boat ride, but it's a nice view of the pond and there's some great info about the birds in the park for the uninitiated.

A walk across Prospect Park, we stopped at the boathouse and found some interesting exhibits and a helpful guide who told us about the bird watching walk. The guide was knowledgeable without being expert and pointed out things we would not have spotted.... More
