  • Prospect Park is jewel. Not only is it centrally located and accessible from variety of subway and bus lines but after visiting for a while, it's right next to Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library and lots of neat neighborhood restaurants. Thus easy to enjoy entire day or even several in and around the various wonderful attractions of Prospect Park and its neighbors. My favorite activity is to buy a great deli sandwich or hamburger and milkshake at Junior's or Brooklyn's Shake Shack and then take 2,3 train to Grand Army Plaza and take walk through park to boathouse area and find spot on grass near lake to enjoy my lunch.

  • As an Upstater, and resident of Brooklyn for the past 25 years, Prospect Park is the best of Brooklyn. If you are a kid, a dog, a nature lover, a runner, a biker, a hiker, a bird lover, a visitor, or even a cynical New Yorker... Prospect Park is an oasis of calm, beauty, peace, and urban coolness. Could not live in NYC without it!
