Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the mid-19th century, Prospect Park is Brooklyn’s flagship park, stretching 585 acres and welcoming more than 10 million visits each year.

Prospect Park's features include Brooklyn's last remaining forest and only lake, as well as rolling meadows, seven playgrounds, and walking and hiking trails. Prospect Park has numerous recreational facilities, such as the LeFrak Center at Lakeside for year-round skating (ice and roller) plus boating and biking, the Tennis Center for indoor and outdoor tennis, ballfields, basketball courts and more.

Prospect Park Alliance is the non-profit organization that sustains "Brooklyn's Backyard," working in partnership with the City of New York. The Alliance was founded in 1987 to help restore the Park after a long period of deterioration and decline. Today, the Alliance provides critical staff and resources that keep the Park green and vibrant for the diverse communities that call Brooklyn home.
