Prospect Park

If Central Park and Prospect Park were to compete for most beautiful, Prospect Park would win hands down.  There’s something about the layout here that’s dreamy.  Is it the lacy trees that drape onto the ponds?  The undulating hills at every open lawn?   You can loose yourself in this park and emerge a changed person.

The park is perfect for picnics and BBQs.  You can set up your grills at designated spots throughout the park.  The area near the picnic house seems to be very popular and has parking close by.  There are events that take place throughout the year, many for kids.   Click here for the calendar.   There is also a skating rink, an Audobon Center, a ballfield, tennis center, and zoo.  For the more adventurous, horseback riding is available.  Click here for an interactive map of the park.  You can get to the park using various trains:  F train at 7th Ave. station, 15th St./Prospect Park station and Fort Hamilton Parkway station; 2 or 3 train at Grand Army Plaza station; Q train at Parkside Ave. station and Prospect Park station; S train at Prospect Park station; and the B train at Prospect Park station.  For driving directions, click here.
