On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest.  Our Night Hikes are great for families!  Fitness Hikes feature less talking and more walking, for those who don’t mind a vigorous two hour hike.  Learn how to navigate using a map and compass on our Orienteering programs.  Hiking and Orienteering programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths), moderate (longer, faster paced hikes on rugged terrain), to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain).  For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.

Baseball FieldsProspect Park

The Long Meadow Ballfields will be closed at Prospect Park for construction. The reconstruction of the Long Meadow Ballfields is a multi-phase project encompassing 34 acres of fields, paths and woodlands. The project incorporates contemporary storm water management techniques that support our goal of capturing and retaining storm water runoff. These improvements will also help to filter runoff before it enters our watercourse. Designed to revitalize the park’s sporting community, the first phase will restore Field One, pedestrian and bridle paths, drinking fountains, benches, and include new tree plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
