Reimagine Prospect Park: November 5 Community Workshop

Sunday, November 5 , 1 pm – 5 pm, 2017

Join Prospect Park Alliance and Hester Street to help reimagine Prospect Park's Rose Garden!

RSVP

Over the last six months we gathered community input on how to shape the future of Prospect Park’s Rose Garden—a little-known area in the northeast corner of the Park —into a welcoming place for all of Brooklyn’s diverse communities. Learn more about the project. 

Now we want to share all the great feedback and ideas we received to narrow down the options. Come out to one of our community events to learn more about this community-driven design process and to participate in activities that will help us refine our ideas. Your input will help shape the future of the Rose Garden!

We are offering several opportunities for you to give feedback! Please drop by on the day that works best for you. Each event will cover the same material. Refreshments, and Spanish and Haitian Creole translated materials will be provided. 

RSVP to let us know you are coming!

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