LeFrak Center at Lakeside

Lakeside is the largest and most ambitious project in Prospect Park since the Park’s creation nearly 150 years ago. Spanning 26 acres, this $74 million restoration by the Prospect Park Alliance honors the original design while transforming an underutilized section of the Park into a popular scenic and recreational destination. Lakeside features the Shelby White and Leon Levy Esplanade and Chaim Baier Music Island, and the Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Center, which provides the public with seasonal ice skating, roller skating, biking, boating and water play. Learn more about its design and sustainability features.



The LeFrak Center is located near the Lincoln Road and Parkside/Ocean Avenue entrances to the Park.
