Prospect Park = Perfect Staycation

Posted

Ditch the plane tickets or long car rides. Prospect Park is brimming with cool spots - and things to do.

Designed and constructed over a thirty-year period (1865-1895) by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the masterminds behind Central Park, Prospect Park has blossomed into a premiere destination for Brooklyn visitors and residents alike.

Widely known for its intricate manmade watercourse (wetlands) and its trees, the bulk of Brooklyn's remaining indigenous forest, the park is a highly functional green space. Contained within its 526 acres are a zoo, the first urban-area Audubon Center in the nation, an ice rink, a band shell, a carousel, and dozens of athletic and recreational facilities.

Begin your explorations today and join the eight million annual visitors reaping the benefits of this beautiful park!
