Discover hidden treasures, natural wonders, and lesser-known stories on this interactive guided tour of Prospect Park in the heart of Brooklyn. While taking in the beauty of this iconic park’s woodlands, rolling meadows, watercourse, wildlife, and historic landmarks, this tour explores the fascinating layers of this 526-acre landscape’s natural and human history, from the flora and geology, to the architectural eras visible in the built environment to the past and present of recreation and play. Learn how the use of the Park has changed over time, from the original vision of designers Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux to projects underway today that support environmental conservation, historic preservation, and recreational and cultural access for Brooklynites and visitors alike.
