Brooklyn's answer to Central Park, Prospect Park contains a zoo, an audubon center and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Its entrance is marked by the large Memorial Arch and it is a mecca for families and nature lovers who go to play ball, bird watch and listen to outdoor concerts.

We went on a scorching day in jeans and tshirts, but enjoyed getting tired out. Really beautiful in the sun, and nice to see loads of people using the space for running, kids, dogs and there was even a film crew. Gorgeous scenery, really photogenic...More

Prospect Park, also designed by Frederick Olmstead, is really fantastic! Historically, this was Olmstead's favorite, and it is easy to see why! The foliage, water features, building, bike and walking paths, gardens, all gorgeous! Go and visit! You will not regret it!!!

We stumbled on this by chance after being shocked at the price of admission to Brooklyn Botanic Garden, so refused to go. It was pretty, centrally located but peaceful. However no toilets to be found anywhere. Those that were signposted were closed. Shame.

Huge trees, great atmosphere, good for relaxing with friends, a hidden gem. Very well laid out yet informal.

Beautiful park, well maintained, much more personal than Central Park. Go to CP for the history, but to to Prospect Park to really enjoy the peace and getting back to nature. Friendly people, not overly crowded, great for couples, families, and pets.

What a gem. Larger than Central Park, with more nooks and museums/offerings. Easy to get to from all parts of western Brooklyn. Take a CitiBike to get there.

We arrived by cab but didn't see parking near the zoo. We had a problem getting a cab afterwards as none passed that weren't pre-booked. In the end we had to walk a fair way to the library and ask for help from the... More

Sorry, but it is gone . To my knowledge it was outside of the Barclay's Center on Atlantic Ave near the entrance of the MTA subway station granted that was early Sept. Not quite sure where it is now
