Prospect Park Audubon Center

The first in an urban park, the Prospect Park Audubon Center is the result of an innovative partnership between the Prospect Park Alliance and Audubon New York. The Alliance offers free public programming that allows park visitors of all ages to explore the diversity of nature in Prospect Park. Programs take place both at the Boathouse, a historic landmark surrounded by acres of carefully restored natural habitat, and throughout the Park through the Alliance’s innovative Pop-Up Audubon program. In Spring 2015, the Alliance is expanding its public programs, with new weekend hours at the Boathouse, a second Pop-Up Audubon tent and new Discovery Packs, ready-to-go kits filled with nature activities for children.



Thursday-Friday, 12-4 pm Saturday-Sunday, 10 am-1 pm Memorial Day Monday, May 25, 12–4 pm


The Audubon Center is located near the Lincoln Road entrance. Cross the Park Drive and follow path under Cleft Ridge Span.
