Brooklyn's answer to Central Park, Prospect Park contains a zoo, an audubon center and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Its entrance is marked by the large Memorial Arch and it is a mecca for families and nature lovers who go to play ball, bird watch and listen to outdoor concerts.

Many playgrounds to choose from. Baseball fields, football and soccer fields. Awesome track that loops the whole park. Bbq sections. Ice skating, roller skating rinks. Its definitely the central park of brooklyn fully equipped with a beautiful lake and a bandshell for summer concerts.ENJOY!

Every time we cone to NYC we make sure to take a long walk in Prospect Prk. I actually prefer it to central park in terms of feeling like you are away from the city.

Great getaway from the everyday grind. From tikes to bikes to puppies running around. A great place to relax and unwind.

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
