Designed by the same landscape architects who created Central Park, Prospect Park is home to Brooklyn's only lake, which spans 24 hectares (60 acres) and is surrounded by woodlands, walking paths, and lawns. The park is full of memorials, including the Litchfield Villa and a statue of General Lafayette. Stop first at the Boathouse visitor center for information on park events and attractions. Rent a bicycle to tour the trails if you want to cover a large area in a shorter amount of time.

Prospect Park Reviews
Everyone says Central Park is the best in NY, and maybe it is. But as a native NYC expat (to San Diego) and frequent family visitor, this gem may be even better! It is huge and has much variety... more »
If you are in BK you must visit the park. In the summer there are so many activities; movie night, yoga in the park etc. If you have a dog, bring the dog in the morning between 6-9am or from 9pm... more »
Prospect park is an iconic landscape of natural but manicured gardens, Trees, roads and paths. Plenty to explore to exercise those legs of yours. Oxygen density is better in this zone like central park, but for downtown Brooklyn. The outskirts have plenty of shops restaurants and you find tourists and locals frequently engaging. I personally love this area. You should too. Enjoy
We had the privilege to come to Prospect Park to celebrate a birthday and it is always a great, clean and fun venue! The kids get to run around, there is a lot of space and vendors and things to do. We very much recommend this park and hope to party again here soon!
