Things to Do

There's a lot to do in Park Slope, but one of the most interesting places to hang out in the neighborhood is Prospect Park. The 526-acre park was designed by the same architects as Manhattan's Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted, and Calvert B. Vaux. It offers several amenities like rolling meadows, the Prospect Park Carousel, and sporting facilities like tennis centers, basketball courts, baseball fields, and soccer fields.   
 
The park offers a myriad of activities. You can go picnicking, boating, fishing, jogging, biking, or take nature walks around the park, go horseback riding at Kensington Stables, spend a day visiting exotic animals at the Prospect Park Zoo, or catch an outdoor concert at the Lena Horne Bandshell, go skating at the LeFrak Center, or stop by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum, which are both situated at the north end of the park.
