Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Join NYC Parks and the Prospect Park Alliance in celebrating the park’s new public sculpture exhibition by Fitzhugh Karol. Enjoy an artist walk through the park and hear from Karol himself about the concepts behind the pieces. The two sculptures, titled “Searches” and “Reaches” are part of NYC Parks Art in the Parks program and will be on display through spring 2018. Dress warmly, hot cider provided.

Two sculptures of colorful intersecting steel shapes reference familiar silhouettes of stairs and hillsides. Their abstract and playful shapes invite interaction and are a reminder of man’s imprint on the landscape. 

Please note: This event was previously scheduled for November 8.

Raccoons in Prospect Park have tested positive for canine distemper virus. Although the virus cannot be transmitted to humans, it may be transmitted to dogs. Keep your pets safe in the park.

Please avoid wildlife and make sure your pets have up-to-date distemper and rabies vaccines. We strongly recommend keeping your pet on a leash, especially during dawn and dusk.

Please call 311 or notify an on-site Parks employee if you see a sick or injured animal.

If you are bitten, wash the wound with soap and water immediately. Call your doctor to see if you need tetanus or rabies shots, and call 311 to report the bite.

The Health Department will continue to monitor this condition.
