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.

This park is unreal. Really doesn't feel like you are in the city and there is always something to do there. Ice rink is brilliant in winter and much less pretentious than Manhattan

Ran the 5K route during a recent visit to Brooklyn and it was great. Running, biking, and walking lanes clearly demarcated, clean path, pretty flat, surrounded by beautiful trees and foliage. What a way to start the day!

Unlike Central Park, Brooklyn's Prospect park is both spectacular and secluded, a therapeutic retreat from stress, congestion, and noise. Very easy to get to -- there are 4 different subway stations on various borders of this massive park, and others within a couple of blocks....More

A true gem in the middle of Brooklyn. On a Sunday afternoon there was plenty of green space to enjoy a picnic, a friendly game of soccer or volleyball. We also enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the park.

It's so calm and peaceful here. Everyone is having a nice day, laughing, enjoying their free time. I love it.

Beautiful natural park filled with wildlife and far less people than one would expect. Large open meadows for frisbee games and gatherings, a dog beach at a small lake, boating, waterfalls, meandering paths, the Audubon Center... just go and recover from the pace of the...More

Prospect park is a nice refreshing place to enjoy a relaxing stroll, jog, or cycle in Brooklyn. It is nicely designed although would like to see the water kept cleaner (has too much rubbish).

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
