This magical spot is less than a mile from my home, which makes me one lucky girl :) I remember the first time I went to check it out and I was totally in AWE! Prospect Park is massive and you can go multiple times and still discover new paths, new playgrounds, new perfect picnic spots, etc...
The other awesome thing about this park is that
during the summer they offer FREE concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell and there is just something extra special about sitting on the grass, underneath beautiful trees, all immersed in nature with live music on the stage!
Whether you want to relax alone, sunbathe, exercise, watch a baseball game, sit by the waterfront and see the massive swans (like the one in the pic I took below), go for a walk, people watch, bike ride, or go to a concert - this place truly has it all!
