An absolute Gem

As an NYC-Manhattan tourist, its easy to miss the absolutely beautiful Prospect Park. Its well worth the metro-ride to see a completely different side of NYC.

It was built to rival many famous parks over a century ago. Has been recently renovated. It's like my back yard with all the casual attractions, it never ceases to amaze me what I discover. Our new skating rink; Winter and Summer skating. Rowing in the restructured pond, sledding down random hills in the Winter, watching concerts of major and... More

Why did it take us so long to find this??? Prospect Park is HUGE, with an astonishing variety of trees (take a tree ID book), lots of history (battles fought here), and best of all, ice-skating! We had such a superb time skating with our niece and nephew: very family friendly, inexpensive and fun. Taking a Uber car to and... More

Staying in Park Slope for a month, Prospect Park became our place to stroll and just take it easy. Whether we were taking in the many aspects of the lake, meandering through the ravine, watching the dogs and their owners at the dog beach, spectating a sporting contest or just chilling out, we thoroughly enjoyed the park. It's quiet, easy... More

Theres a lot going on at this park from the tennis, to the ice skating/roller skating, joggers in the park, and the swans on the lake. Its definitely better in the summer but booms all year round. Perfect for strolls, and bike rides. The park is large so its important that you know which entrance is best for your activity.

I've spent many days and evenings in the park. I've walked with an herbalist who introduced me to the variety in the park but most of all I love going for the farmers market and the festivals in the park. The free fests with international artists can't be beat!

This is a small town zoo. It is a nice place for a family place to ramble around but I admit to not liking to see animals incarcerated. However that aside, it is a great place to take children as there is plenty of space for them to run around. Outside we enjoyed kicking leaves in some late November sunshine... More

Had a stroll around this park on a beautifully sunny Christmas day with the family. Even in winter it has a calm beauty away from the hectic city. Great place for the little (and big) kids to try out new toys, and interesting plaques explaining the 'Battle of Long Island'.
