LeFrak Center at Lakeside

Lakeside is the largest and most ambitious project in Prospect Park since its creation over 150 years ago. Spanning 26 acres, this $74 million restoration by the Prospect Park Alliance transforms the southeast corner of the Park into a popular scenic and recreational destination. The Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Center at Lakeside provides seasonal ice skating, roller skating, biking, boating and water play. The Bluestone Cafe at the Chase Pavilion provides light fare and beverages year round. Become an Alliance member for great perks year round, including free skating days.

Please note: parking for the LeFrak Center at Lakeside is available on Breeze Hill. Please enter at the Lincoln Road entrance to access this parking lot.
