“Good zoo”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Prospect Park Zoo is a small Brooklyn gem. The petting zoo allows interaction with. Animals. The monkeys are always a favorite with our family. A walk in the park after visiting the zoo is a must. Very nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Me & my daughter had a good time visiting this park in Brooklyn, New York. It is a huge park and has a dedicated cycle track, it has got a few ducks and sea birds also.

“Great place to relax on a hot summer day”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Brooklyn's most popular park with a large central lake and many large open fields, great for roaming or just relaxing under some shady trees. There are long paved walking and biking lanes. The park roadway is frequently closed to traffic. There is a playground on the west side, a zoo and botanical garden on Flatbush Ave side.

“Great place to take a walk”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Prospect Park is well maintained and a nice environment to walk through. There is a farmers market just past Grand Army Plaza on the weekends. Nice to take a picnic, or just get back to nature for a few minutes - escaping the city streets.

“Great place to take the kids.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We took the grand kids on an outing. There is so much to see and do. The zoo is interactive, and the sea lions are so entertaining. We hiked over to the boat house and had a picnic by the lake. The children played hide and go seek inside the weeping willow. Then we took pics inside. Everyone had a marvelous time.
