The Prospect Park Alliance introduces Pop-Up Audubon II, an aquatically themed expansion of our popular nature education program. This summer, Pop-Up II will offer twice the fishing fun: children will have the opportunity to learn about fishing safety, how to use a rod and reel, and aquatic ecology.

Open to children between the ages of 8 and 15 accompanied by a parent or guardian. Availability is first-come, first-served. For more information, call (718) 287-3400 x302.

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
