Many people (and Brooklynites in particular) consider Prospect Park to be Vaux & Olmsted’s landscaping masterpiece.  Though most famous for its 90-acre Long Meadow, Prospect Park is a treasure trove of cultural activity, featuring a bandshell, a zoo, a boathouse, and Audubon Center, event venues such as Litchfield Villa and the Picnic House, a carousel, an ice rink, and countless playgrounds and sports fields.  Prospect Park’s famous watercourse flows through the picturesque Ravine District and features Brooklyn’s only lake.
