For being less in the eye of the tourists I must say I prefer the vibe of Prospect Park to that of Central Park. Beautiful, rustic walkways and we also went ice skating there which was lovely.

We arrived for a few hours of bird-watching and got a few things there. There was a twitch for a Mew Gull (Common Gull) which was nice. Plenty to see and do here.

You can hire a city bike and cycle around the park! Great fun and only a few steeper areas. Well marked cycle paths. Stop and picnic. Relaxing and fun on a good weather day.

Used to live around here and make a point to visit every year. I love it. It is a perfect oasis in Brooklyn. And during the warmer months there are shows and activities.

Always enjoy walking around this park and going to the zoo. It's not very big, but it is lovely. Been visiting since my children were little

This is great park for families with children or adults alone. There are many playgrounds, an ice skating rink in winter and picnic areas, bike paths galore. I love this park. An easy walk from my grandchildren in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York.

Sorry, but it is gone . To my knowledge it was outside of the Barclay's Center on Atlantic Ave near the entrance of the MTA subway station granted that was early Sept. Not quite sure where it is now
