Prospect Park has a bit of everything for everyone. So many different playgrounds for kids, all with a water feature for hot summer days. Le Frak is a real treasure. Plenty of open fields for your own type of play. Prospect Park is the best!

I went on a sunny Sunday, it was a lot of fun getting lost in this big beautiful park. There were a lot of places to sit with a picnic blanket and very chill atmosphere. Loved it!

We wondered through Prospect Park for a few hours, it's lovely and clean and perfect for a picnic and a relax. Lots of different things to see around the park and not too busy when we went, would pass through again.

Beautiful place in Brooklyn, it was awesome to have contact with nature, the park is well preserved and secure! There’s an old carrossel, also very charming! Nice place to relax or have a family picnic.

When visiting Brooklyn Prospect Park is a nice and quiet place in the center. It's a little like Central Park but more quiet and more local (less tourists). Just sit on one of the benches and enjoy the weather, the people, the nature and relax...More

Prospect park is a good place to relax. For those who love a bit of nature in the midst of a busy place.. There are many activities here in the evening as the place gets cooler then. Dress in something comfortable..and bring a picnic basket....More

I'm a cyclist - for biking it has been excellent. I don't know about skating, but the road is made of asphalt. The last time it was repaved was in 2016 in preparation for the half-marathon run.
