Prospect Park: Brooklyn’s Backyard Family Program

Prospect Park is an oasis for people – and animals! Discover the native habitats and inhabitants of the park, and explore the past and present of recreation, animals, and ongoing conservation efforts of the Prospect Park Alliance. From turtles to peacocks, this tour includes animal-themed activities that will lead us through the park’s woodlands, arches, and waterways. You’ll look for turtles, birds, and other woodland creatures, and learn how Prospect Park manages and restores the park’s wildlife ecosystem. This program will also visit the Audubon Nature Center at the historic Boathouse, ride on a 1912 restored carousel, and see animals and animal-inspired art inside the Prospect Park Zoo. This program is fun for families and people of all ages!
