Sustaining the Park's Waterways
Prospect Park is home to an epic watercourse—a series of pools, streams and waterfalls that culminate in Brooklyn’s only lake. In recent months, Prospect Park Alliance has undertaken an extensive cleanup of the landscape that sculpts this waterway. Check out this stunning series of before-and-after shots that show the breadth of the work undertaken by Alliance staff and volunteers in the spring and summer of 2019 to revitalize this important natural area.
The public helped us complete this work, cleaning up the landscape around the Lily Pond Pool at Binnen Bridge near the Boathouse. Volunteers donned waders to remove aquatic weeds, clean up the shoreline and perform other tasks to beautify the area in fall 2019.
