A full and fun day in one of the city's best parks. Prospect Park has so many child-friendly attractions that you might find a single visit won't do them justice. You can also bring a ball and play in an open field, watch dogs frolic at dog beach, and walk through the ravine, New York's last remaining forest. In summer, the bandshell at 9th St., near the Harmony Playground, hosts concerts and dance performances. A stable offers trail rides in the park.

We picked a day when there was a festival so it was difficult to navigate but once in the park an enjoyable ride.

Great park for birding, especially during spring warbler migration.

a fast paved loop with a challenging hill. it's a beautiful place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Biggest surprise was the collection of padlocks at mid-bridge. Then I read the NYC removes thousands of the "love-locks" at a time.

Perfect trail for running and bike.
No big steep hills (just one but not that steep) majority flat.
I was in Brooklyn and it was a great option instead go to Central Park as I'm used to.

Nice walk. Not really a hike.
