Experience Prospect Park

About the Park

Prospect Park, located in Brooklyn, New York, is one of America’s greatest parks from an aesthetic and historical perspective.

It has been called Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted's masterpiece—Vaux and Olmsted being the landscape architects who years earlier, designed Central Park.

Incursions into the area’s natural topography, which includes the last forest of Brooklyn, provided an ideal environment for Vaux and Olmsted's ideas.

Chief among them, are a number of falls and a lake so artfully contrived, that unless told, one may never have reason to suspect it was man made.

The Lake

Within the area now known as Prospect Park is where the largest battle of the American Revolutionary War, with regard to troops involved occurred.

Several major pieces of art to commemorate this and other military battles have been dedicated on the inside and outside of the grounds.
