    Vanderbilt playground has a fabulous enclosed area for toddlers with a climbing structure and water feature in the summer. Excellent big "spider web" for older kids and decent shade.

    Brooklyn's premier park. If you want to get away from the city bustle, take a hike in the spring or fall. New spots to find each time.

    Abigail Argersinger · November 2

    One of the best places to watch migratory birds in NYC.

    Saturday's in the park means picnics, pickup volleyball, kite flying and now even drones. One of the greatest parks in the country.

    Beautiful ~600 acres that seems endless, designed by the same architects of Central Park (but known as their fave!). Full of gems like the boathouse, skating rink, lakes, & great bike/running routes.

  • Kimmie O.

    This is like Brooklyn's Central Park :P. Whether or not one agrees on that, we can all agree that this park is beautiful ❤️

    It's huge and easy to get lost, but very beautiful and great for all kind of activities.

  • Fodor's Travel

    Brooklyn residents love Prospect Park, and with good reason: green spaces, curved walkways, summer concerts, vivid foliage in autumn, and an all-season skating rink make it a year-round getaway. Read more

    LOVE the dog beach! what a great thing for dogs to play in 😍 this park is relatively clean and is well-lit once it's dark. I feel safe on the track in the evenings. I have seen cops patrol often.

    where to go if you want to escape the building and city life, but not hang around a bunch of tourists like you find at Central Park. pretty much all Brookynites.

    No place better on a warm late summer Sunday afternoon. Bring friends and a picnic and you'll see why.

    The dogs can enjoy watching people ice skate in the rink for a few more days! Fun, fun!

  • Amy S.

    My favorite park in the city! Aside from Grand Ferry Park (more quaint and small). If you're looking for an alternative to CP with lots of picnic spots, go!

    Umm, I kinda felt like the grass could have been greener. But, maybe I was on the wrong side.
