Arguably the nicest place to walk in Brooklyn. Paved roads well marked, well kept. Delightful change in the middle of the urban jungle. There is also a dirt-paved trail run around the perimeter of the park, which I have not explored yet.

Beautiful and clean. Pristinely paved track with clear signage indicating the directions and lane assignments for walkers/runners and bikers.

Nice loop around Prospect Park, fully paved the whole way. Pedestrian walkway on the left, bikes down the middle. Good views of the lawns, with tons of BBQs and picnickers on an early summer day. You'll also pass by the lake about half way through. Last half mile or so is a gentle little climb. Worth checking out Grand Army Plaza and the beautiful Bailey Fountain, which are adjacent to the park.

The hill definitely offers a challenge but it sure is fun going back down on your bike.

Stunning views of the Verrazano Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, Staten Island and the NYC skyline. It’s challenging if you make it. Otherwise it can just be relaxing. Check out the 69th St Pier, Verrazano gardens, ball fields, Shore Rd Park and my fave..Owls Head Park. There are free movies on the green in the summer months. Or take the ferry to a trendy Bklyn neighborhood or NYC!

This is an incredible park! You can keep to main roads or go off the main tracks though more dense trees and it gets seriously beautiful and wild!! Totally unexpected but this might be my favourite park in New York. Saw lots of bird life and animals going about their day which added to the magic.

Love this place

Cranford Rose Garden makes a great date destination when the roses are in full bloom.

Really nice walk... it isn't a true boardwalk as it is all concrete. It is wide and should withstand any future storm. Great beach... pretty easy to get to from the city. Good for people watching. There isn't much else along this stretch...you have to west on 116th to find any decent eats. It is an easy 10 miles and a good way to get the steps in.

nice place for relax

This is my daily trail run! What I love most about this loop is its variety: beautiful trees and foliage, sweeping views of the lake and fields, a mix of ups and downs, and plenty of water fountains along the way. March / April is the best time of year to visit, when snow drops, daffodils and crocus bloom all along the path.

Of course there is plenty of walking experiences here in the different gardens. Area dedicated to kids as well. They are undergoing renovations in some parts (2017-2018) but only one area at a time, and so much else to see.
This is a regular spot for my wife and I to do a quick walk through or a leisurely stroll with friends and their kids.
There are birding guided tours which are fun too!

A nice long loop, all paved with some incline. I wouldn’t call it an easy run.

I love running with the dogs here, it’s the closest to being in the woods you can get in Brooklyn!

Great place to walk the dogs. In the winter there is music from the ice skating rink!

It's just a boardwalk, nothing there at all. Be careful at night there.

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

Very beautiful botanical garden located in the heart of Brooklyn. Nice escape from the busy city and buildings. Beautiful flowers, gardens, lakes, and waterfall. We were there in the Spring and the Cherry trees were in bloom and they were beautiful
