This is such a peaceful calm park. We cycled around it a few times. There's a loop around the outside of the park which is split into running, walking and slow/fast cycle lanes. Cutting inside it's very easy to find a quiet spot by the...More

Prospect Park (like Central Park) is man-made, super big and a gorgeous refuge from the “concrete jungle” of skyscrapers and hustle and bustle that defines NYC. There are excellent birdwatching opportunities (I saw a striking red breasted bird), squirrels, lakes (on which you can go...More

Whilst discovering other Brooklyn boroughs,and because it was sunny, we checked out what this park had to offer. It’s wonderful, and there’s something for everyone. It’s in the very heart of Brooklyn slopes, the Libary is very close by, you are close to all amenities....More

Nice beautiful Prospect Park. You can easily spend the day here. Either for a walk/run/bicycle ride, a relaxing picnic or just to chill.

Such a spectacular park with nature trails and rocks and lakes, and plenty of replenishing entertainment and exercise. NOTE: don't expect to cross over Flatbush to enter into the Botanical Garden. It's fence lined the entire length. You need to go to Mary Pinkett Ave....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.
