Want to help preserve the lovely green spaces of NYC? The Prospect Park Walk-a-Thon is a great way to give back and keep this historic Brooklyn park green and beautiful for generations to come. I've registered and will be walking the park Sunday September 18, 2011! Click here to register online.
If you can't make it, you can sponsor my footsteps with a donation, see my donation page.
On the weekends the park is a place where we can escape from our shoebox apartments. Grab a blanket, frisbee, a good read, and you will have the best afternoon ever in Prospect Park. If you've never been- you should plan a visit. It's a sprawling outdoor oasis complete with numerous hiking trails, a zoo, lake, horseback riding, bandshell, multiple playgrounds, and even a vintage carousel. This park is bursting with history and it needs our help to keep it going.
