Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Built in 1905, Prospect Park’s Beaux Arts–style boathouse was one of the first buildings in New York City to be declared a landmark. In 2002, it became the home of the nation’s first urban Audubon Center. The state-of-the-art facility features interactive exhibits that allow visitors to virtually explore the great outdoors. Parties include a choice of activity: Take a guided walk with a naturalist, go for a narrated tour on the electric boat Independence (April to October) or make an age-appropriate craft project, such as animal masks or puppets. The center is available Saturdays and Sundays year-round. $375 without electric boat tour, $475 with electric boat tour; both for 28 kids.
