Prospect Park is located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. It was created between 1866 and 1873, on an area of 585 acres of remnant forest and farmland that was transformed into a beautiful landscape. It was officially opened in 1867. Later, the Park was completed with playgrounds, a zoo, skating rink, botanical garden and other equipment.
