Prospect Park is a wonderful course to run while visiting Brooklyn or while attending a running event. Rolling hills = a nice run........Enjoy!!

Not very pretty on March but imagine it’s nicer in the spring/summer. Saw a man hiding his alcohol but clearly drunk roaming around. He wasn’t the only one we saw as we wandered around. Popular with Dog walkers. Not much to see really

Prospect park is beautiful and huge!! Amazing place to go with friends, families, couples! There is so much to do! We saw people playing soccer, jogging, biking, riding bikes, playing frisbee, volleyball, so much more — and that was in the winter!
