Play and Go in Prospect Park!
July 22, 2020
There is a new way to have fun in Prospect Park this summer! Join Prospect Park Alliance at locations around the park and surrounding neighborhoods as we bring our favorite activities from the Prospect Park Audubon Center and Lefferts Historic House on the road in easy-to-borrow play and go kits.
The Pop-Up Lefferts Play and Go Kit includes historic games and toys, including a DIY kits to make a nine-man morris game board and Mamantuhwin, a Native American (Lenape) dice game, which you can take home with you. There is also a wooden egg and spoon and potato sacks for races with your friends and family. A small library of children’s books can also be borrowed along with your kit on a first-come first-served basis. Learn more about dates and locations.
Pop-Up Audubon Play and Go Kits features a range of fun nature activities and games, as well as a birdwatching checklist with binoculars, and much more. Families and children can enjoy nature on their own as they explore and learn more about the park. Learn more about dates and locations.
Kits can be borrowed for up to 45 minutes, and will be sanitized between sessions.
Pop-Up Audubon is made possible through the generous support of Con Edison.
Pop-Up Lefferts is supported in part by NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.
