Prospect Park is home to seven playgrounds, including some of the most interesting and dynamic in the City. Located around the Park’s perimeter, they offer children engaging opportunities for safe and imaginative play. The Park’s newest play destination, the Zucker Natural Exploration Area, was named the Best of New York by New York Magazine.


All park playgrounds open at 6:00am and close at 9:00pm.
