OHNY: Waterways of Prospect Park Tour

Join Prospect Park Alliance and Turnstile Tours for an exploration of Prospect Park’s waterways, part of Open House New York. We will look closely at the ingenious drainage system and chain of manmade streams and ponds that terminate in Brooklyn’s largest lake, follow the park’s scenic watercourse, and go inside one of the most unique features of the park: the 1869 Wellhouse, the park’s last remaining building by park designer Calvert Vaux, which once housed the machinery that fueled the watercourse and was recently restored by the Prospect Park Alliance and converted into the first composting restrooms in a NYC park.

OHNY Weekend experiences require advance reservation; tickets become available on Thursday, October 7 at 11 am.
