Great place for a walk, a bike ride, and a picnic. You realize the advantages of nature bathing here on a hot day.

Nice place to come to escape the heat of the city. Stuff to explore for kids if you go to the centre when you arrive

Prospect Park in some ways is better than Central. Actual park rather than made. It has rolling fields and plenty of trees for shade. Lots to do and see.

A baby sister to Central Park with quiet spots , water views and good for watching birds. Nice walks and playgrounds. Not a trip special from the city but worth a stroll if you visit the art museum.

Prospect Park has a bit of everything for everyone. So many different playgrounds for kids, all with a water feature for hot summer days. Le Frak is a real treasure. Plenty of open fields for your own type of play. Prospect Park is the best!

I went on a sunny Sunday, it was a lot of fun getting lost in this big beautiful park. There were a lot of places to sit with a picnic blanket and very chill atmosphere. Loved it!

Stayed in Brooklyn for a month and went for a run most days in Prospect Park. It’s a great place to enjoy the greenery and get some good trail runs in also. Loved it. I also attended the Smorgasbord event on Sundays. It is not...More

We wondered through Prospect Park for a few hours, it's lovely and clean and perfect for a picnic and a relax. Lots of different things to see around the park and not too busy when we went, would pass through again.
