People don’t realize the amazing and huge parks carved out all over NYC. Prospect park is one of the biggest and just up the street. There is a restaurant, botanical garden and lots of walking or biking paths to enjoy. There is even horse back riding available.

The Brooklyn version of Central Park. There is a zoo, an ice skating rink in the winter, a carousel and a great Farmer's Market on the weekends. Check out Summer Stage in the Summer for tons of shows.

This is considered “The Central Park of Brooklyn” by locals. This large park has expansive walking and biking trails along fields, woods, and a lake. This is a great place to enjoy a picnic and, in the summer, they have many free evening events like live music and movies on the lawn.
