Lookout Hill, Nethermead

Halloween Haunted Walk + Fair

Saturday, October 24 , 12 pm – 3 pm, 2015

The Prospect Park Alliance presents its 36th Annual Halloween Haunted Walk and Fair on Saturday, October 24, from 12 to 3 pm. This cherished annual event brings thousands of families to Prospect Park’s Lookout Hill and Nethermead for an afternoon of ghoulish fun that is free and open to the public.

Encounter zombies, werewolves, good (and not-so-good) witches, and other Halloween characters on a haunted walk through the woodland Lookout Hill, ideal for families with children ages 7-12. All ages can enjoy a festive Halloween Fair on the Nethermead, featuring family-friendly activities, as well as sweet and savory treats from some of the city’s top food trucks. This year, meet Snoopy from The Peanuts Movie, and learn the tricks of the trade from Blue Sky Studio artists, who will teach children how to draw their own Snoopy.

Throughout the weekend, enjoy Halloween events at the Prospect Park Audubon Center and Children's Corner. 

We need you! Volunteer to help the Prospect Park Alliance with this event. Sign up today as an actor, tour guide, make-up artist, or other behind the scenes roles!

Natural Disruptions

All Day, Saturday, October 24, 2015

The Prospect Park Alliance and ArtBridge have collaborated to transform 300 feet of construction fencing in Prospect Park into a large-scale, outdoor photo installation. Natural Disruptions features the work of two Brooklyn artists, Mark Dorf and Anthony Goicolea.

Through digital manipulation, Dorf and Goicolea slyly alter our understanding of nature. Goicolea’s landscapes are like snapshots from a playfully dark daydream. Dorf’s work questions the ways that science and the Internet define our relationship with nature.

The installation will cover construction fencing at the historic 1869 Wellhouse, one of Prospect Park’s oldest structures, which originally served as a pump house for the Park’s water supply. The Prospect Park Alliance is transforming the building into public restrooms featuring composting toilets—the first to be installed in a New York City park.

Natural Disruptions will be on view from September 30, 2015, through Summer 2016. In addition to the Wellhouse, the exhibition will continue along Wellhouse Drive at Terrace Bridge, adjacent to the Park’s new Sunday Smorgasburg event (which runs through October 11). The photo installation consists of more than 40 artworks, running 300 feet along Wellhouse Drive, and ranging from 6 to 8 feet high.

For a chance to win a limited edition print from this show, Instagram or Tweet an image of this exhibition with the hashtag #ArtInProspectPark. See rules.
