Celebrate the 150th anniversary of Prospect Park on this special series of guided walking tours! These tours will examine the Park’s many layers of natural and human history. Prospect Park is a reflection of Brooklyn; its history traces that of the city around it, and it is today an important gathering place for many diverse communities that call the borough home. Learn about Prospect Park Alliance’s historic restoration and environmental preservation work in the Park, including cultural and recreation projects currently underway.
