Lefferts Historic House                        Pop-Up Audubon                               Audubon Center

The Park is home to Brooklyn’s last forest and its only freshwater lake. Hundreds of species of fish, birds, waterfowl and turtles – creatures from every walk of life – live in the Park, sharing 585 acres of breathtaking green space with a rich variety of plant life. Prospect Park also houses the nation’s first urban Audubon Center, the 18th-century Lefferts Historic House, and a wealth of exciting recreational activities to add some action to school trips. Prospect Park is one of the world’s largest classrooms!


Education in Prospect Park
 

The Brooklyn Academy of Science and the Environment High School (BASE), the result of a partnership between the Prospect Park Alliance and Brooklyn Botanical Garden, is proving each school day that the brand of education practiced in the Park can raise graduation rates, attendence rates, and test scores.

The Brooklyn Cultural Adventures Program (BCAP) Summer Camp provides kids with great educational opportunities in the summer.

 

Get Started!

With lots of maps and directional signage throughout the Park, and a staggering variety of natural features to support any lesson plan, self-guided field trips to the Park are productive and easy to plan.
