This beautiful Brooklyn park was created by the same architects who were responsible for the splendid Central Park
in Manhattan. Unlike its more famous cousin in Manhattan, Prospect Park sits pretty amidst a primarily residential area and is not surrounded by skyscrapers. Many Olmsted fans dub this 526-acre (212.87 hectare) park his crowning achievement. It features horseback riding, ice skating, tennis, paddle boats and a carousel, as well as the Prospect Park Wildlife Center
. There is a band shell for concerts, and Prospect Lake is often teeming with ducks, geese and swans.
