Reimagine Prospect Park

Transforming the Prospect Park Vale into a place for all of Brooklyn’s diverse communities.

Prospect Park Alliance  in collaboration with Hester Street invited the community to help shape the future of Prospect Park’s former Rose Garden, located in the Vale in the northeast corner of the Park. See the results of this community outreach in our report. 

This project is part of a larger effort by Prospect Park Alliance to restore this 26-acre section of the Park, which also includes the recent restoration of the Flatbush Avenue Park Perimeter and creation of two new park entrances, a major restoration of the Vale woodlands, as well as path and lighting improvements to make this area of the park more accessible to the public.

Prospect Park Alliance will conduct further community outreach as the design of this project moves forward. Join our email list for invitations to this process in the coming months. 

Reimagine Prospect Park was made possible through the generous support of The Altman Foundation.

Rose Garden
Originally a children’s playground, this little-known spot was made into a rose garden by famed designers McKim, Mead and White in the 1890s. Today, the Prospect Park Alliance is beginning plans for the restoration of this landscape. For now, enjoy the solitude of this secret garden.
