  • Prospect Park
    This green space puts the "park" in "Park Slope," and was designed by the same Olmsted and Vaux team behind Manhattan's Central Park. This winter the attraction receiving the most attention will likely be Lakeside, a skating facility that has replaced the old Wollman Rink and features outdoor and covered rinks. Among the park's other attractions: the Prospect Park Zoo, Brooklyn's only natural forest, the breathtaking Long Meadow and a "dog beach," where four-legged New Yorkers swim. During the summer the park is the site of Celebrate Brooklyn!, a popular series of (mostly free) outdoor concerts that has brought the likes of David Byrne, Ben Folds Five and Talib Kweli to Park Slope.
