Prospect Park: A Man-Made, Living Work of Art
Parkside’s windows open to a view of one of the most renowned green spaces in Brooklyn. Many consider Prospect Park the masterpiece of famed landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the same team who also designed Manhattan’s Central Park.
Life at the Parkside Brooklyn places you directly on the doorstep of Prospect Park and its endless charms. From spring to fall, summer to winter, Prospect Park is the perfect place to find quality time with family, pets, or just to take a quiet break after a long day.
Fresh Air and Fitness
Prospect Park has extensive cycling, walking, and hiking trails, multiple sporting courts and fields, a newly developed rink for roller skating in the summer, and ice skating in the winter. Swing by the LeFrak Center at Lakeside to chase bluegill and bass in Brooklyn’s only urban fishing lake, or to get your daily workout in on a rented paddleboard. Equestrians can also saddle up at nearby Kensington Stables to enjoy a 3.5-mile bridle path.
Kids and Furry Family Members Welcome!
Planning a full-course family picnic? Not only are BBQ amenities provided on the rooftop of Parkside Brooklyn, but you’re right next door to designated BBQ and picnicking areas in the park. Kids can spend hours riding an authentic turn-of-the-century carousel, cooling off in the Splash Pool, and exploring the park’s numerous play areas.
Canine companions are also welcome. Prospect Park offers off-leash hours for pups and your dog can happily enjoy their time at the Dog Beach during the Summer months.
Seasonal Events and Education
Additional perks to living alongside Prospect Park and Prospect Park South include numerous festivals, outdoor films, farmers markets, and concerts at the Bandshell. The Long Meadow area guarantees a soft, grassy spot for you and your friends. Furthermore, Audubon Center, a renovated early 20th-century boathouse, is square one for anyone interested in Prospect Park’s resident wildlife. Warmer weather also brings Smorgasburg, the city’s beloved open-air food market, and a great spot to catch up-and-coming chefs and culinary oddities.
