Planning a day in Prospect Park, Brooklyn? There's plenty of room on the Long Meadow and Nethermead to sunbathe or find the perfect picnic spot, or explore the Ravine, which is the borough's only forest. New York City planner Robert Moses was behind certain park additions, like the Prospect Park Zoo and the bandshell, where Celebrate Brooklyn! hosts awesome free summer concerts all season long.
