Tours and Exploration
Prospect Park offers a number of free tours for visitors: animal encounters, bird watching, nature identification, scavenger hunts and rotating “Discovery” adventures that explore park features and habitats. They take place on weekends from April through December and are run through the “Pop-Up Audubon” program; visit prospectpark.org for more information. There are also private companies that offer their own tours of the park, including Big Onion Walking Tours, highlighting the architecture and history of the park.
