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'.

Within recent years Prospect Park has been rejuvenated all I can say is Wow, the landscaping, the trails, the lake, the section to hold concerts, the dog park, the bikers, the runners, they all have their paths. Not forgetting the playgrounds for the kids. I can go on and on.

My daughter and I walk her dogs in Prospect Park and it is big enough and varied enough to take many different routes so it never gets boring.

The running/bike path is just over a 5k in the loop. As a runner, this is one of the best loops in Brooklyn. It's got dedicated lanes and is never terribly annoyingly crowded. The lake is a great spot to rent a paddle boat or go ice skating.

Once upon a time PP was filthy and dangerous, inside and out. Now, the neighborhoods surrounding are getting upscale and the interior is well maintained. Ice skating and sledding in the winter. Boating and Biking in better weather. Gorgeous playgroungds for the kids. A cute zoo, Carousel, pre Revolutionary Farm, Concert Shell. Almost a Central Park clone (only missing the... More

Our apartment was adjacent to the park. Me and my daughter walked there quite often to go ice skating. The place was covered in snow and was really beautiful.

This park is amazing, so spacious with rolling hills and beautiful trees. Good for when you are needing some fresh, open air after the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
