    One of the best parks I've ever been too. Offers trails for running, walking and exploring! Plenty of places to stop, relax, picnic, etc. Takes a completely different pace from the rest of the area!

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
