Reimagine Prospect Park: Vale Restoration
Transforming the Prospect Park Vale into a place for Brooklyn’s diverse communities.
Through funding from the City, Prospect Park Alliance is transforming key landscapes in the northeast corner of Prospect Park. Untouched by restoration for more than 50 years, the area has recently benefited from the 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 welcoming and accessible to the public.
To shape the vision for these restored landscapes, Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that cares for the park in partnership with the City, collaborated with Hester Street in an intensive, two-year community outreach process in 2017-2018, and came back to the community in Spring 2022 to share this vision prior to embarking on the design.
