“Prospect Park is an urban park in Brooklyn, New York. The park is situated between the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Flatbush and Windsor Terrace. Also, it is adjacent to the Brooklyn Museum, Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. With an area of 526 acres, Prospect Park is the second largest public park in Brooklyn, behind Marine Park. First proposed in legislation which was passed in 1859, Prospect Park was laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, who also helped design Manhattan's Central Park following various changes to its design. Prospect Park opened in 1867, though it was not substantially complete until 1873. The park subsequently underwent numerous modifications and expansions to its facilities. Several additions to the park were completed in the 1890s in the 'City Beautiful' architectural movement. In the early 20th century, New York City Department of Parks and Recreation commissioner, Robert Moses started a program to clean up Prospect Park. A period of decline in the late 20th century spurred the creation of the Prospect Park Alliance, which refurbished many parts of the park starting in the late 1980s. 4.7 stars (14,628 reviews) Excellent Hours: Sunday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Monday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Tuesday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Wednesday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Thursday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Friday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM Saturday 5:00 AM – 1:00 AM”
