Visitors of Brooklyn shouldn’t miss Prospect Park, a beautiful green space in the middle of the City’s most populous borough. The park offers plenty of activities for everyone, whether you're adventurous or more laid-back. Park visitors can go ice-skating at the LeFrak Center at Lakeside, play softball, go horseback riding, visit the Prospect Park Zoo or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, laze about in the Long Meadow, or enjoy a scenic stroll or a relaxing picnic. Four-legged friends can even go for a swim at the Dog Beach. The park also hosts an annual fireworks display on New Year’s Eve. For more information, visit prospectpark.org.
