Features
Local haunt, Free, Family-friendly

Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux (the team behind Central Park), Brooklyn's Prospect Park is considered by some to be the landscape architects' true masterpiece. On weekends locals congregate on the Long Meadow for a pastoral escape from the city. The park is also home to a lake, a zoo, and a bandshell that hosts free concerts in the summer. Unsurprisingly, Prospect Park fills up quickly on summer weekends—come early to get a good spot you can camp out in all day.
