Prospect Park

Prospect ParkThe natural landscape of the park, 526 acres of meadows and wooded bluffs, streams, brooks, and a lake, was left unspoiled when the park was designed in the 1860s by Frederick Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. The former boathouse modeled after a 16th century Venetian building, has been restored and serves as the first urban-area Audubon Center in the nation, it is a place of active discovery with hands-on exhibits and innovative programming for children and adults. Exhibits allow visitors to explore the world of nature through interactive technology, using the Park’s diverse natural habitat as a venue for learning and fun.
