so many beautiful people throwing frisbees!
The best picnic/outdoor afternoon nap/people watching spot in all of Brooklyn… and maybe the whole city too, if I'm being honest.
This is the perfect spot on a Saturday or Sunday day out, it has a lot of green space and cool
Good open space with good views
It's weird knowing that there's this much open space in Brooklyn.
Dogs roam free before 9am, which is so great.
My dog likes this place better than I do.
Best picnic spot!
Good for picnics, laying down, and frisbee. Flying a kite is also pretty neat with all the hills
Judy Chicago's Butterfly for Brooklyn Fireworks.
Wonderful dog runs up to 9 am each day. On weekends it's doggie wonderland. Very fun for them to run around and play together. Kids also love watching the dog parade each morning
Plenty of green space for you to have a picnic on a nice summer day. Bring your dog and let it run free without a leash before 9am.
Dog tips: Off leash is only in the meadows, not the whole park. Don't take your dog off leash at an entrance, it's too tempting for them to go the wrong way. Always have collars and tags on your dog.
Come on the weekends in the morning to see lots of dogs. Off-leash ends at 9 AM.
Off leash hours 5am-9am and 9pm- 1am. This is an amazing experience. There's nothing quite like it anywhere. Doggie heaven!
I love Long Meadow. It's very peaceful. I let my 14 month old daughter run around. She loves it.
Unlike Central Park, at Prospect Park you're still allowed to play catch and throw a ball around. Make the most of it! :)
Do your best not to hit anyone with a frisbee.
The nicest expanse of grass in all of NYC that seems to just go on for miles and miles. Come early on the weekend before 9am, and see the ridiculous amount of dogs and their owners playing!
chill out dude
Red wine in a coke can makes an excellent illicit park beverage
good for do walking, kite flying & picnicking
dog walking and picnicking central
run run run!
Circle Rules Football! Sundays at 2:00!
Go horseback riding!
For some reason the stroller pushers seem to congregate on the west side. If you're suffering from crying baby fatigue, walk east.
I am never very sure how I end up here, but it is always a nice place to find myself in the park.
Shade (and frisbee) for the dog, sun (and a good book) for me.
Come with a blanket and spread out for a picnic under the shade of one of the many trees.
Check out the Fallen Oak on Elephant Hill, the oldest tree out of the 30,000 in the entire park (300 years), before heading over to the Band Shell for a free summer Concert performance. Also, stroll

Beautiful park. Grab a book, a ball, a kite, friend, etc. Just get out there and enjoy it!
Go with a friend at night and listen to the wind in the leaves. Sounds hippy, but it's awesome.
No dogs to play with @ 6 AM on weekdays. I'd come around instead
LOVE <3Don't leave your trash behind. Keep this park beautiful please. Thanks.
come around 8am with your dog for fun with the pooches.
Park time is the right time!
Go to Prospect Park and have a wonderful picnic with mi novio.
Go for the grills and picnic tables on 9th street and West Drive
Sit under the first tree and don't ask me why
A very good reason to visit or live in Park Slope.
Feed the ducks at the dog beach.
