A wonderful park complete with a lake for horseback riding, boat rides, ice skating in the winter, zoo, and lovely farmer's market on the weekends. In the summer you can attend free concerts and movie nights. this is the Brooklyn version of central park!

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.

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.

You're minutes away from this Brooklyn gem. If you're around when the weather is nice, come here early in the morning (before 9am) to see the giant green field FILLED with pups... Or later on during the day to see it filled with folks soaking up the good weather.
