The creation of park was authorized in 1859 but planning was delayed by the Civil War. Finally, in 1865 Prospect Park was designed by Frederic Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux who also designed Manhattan's Central Park and its construction was completed in 1873. The plan divided the park into three areas: meadows, forests, and bodies of water. Prospect Park has tennis courts, a skating rink, and a carousel. It resides on 526 acres of fields, woods, lakes, and trails for running, biking, and relaxing.
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is technically in Prospect Park. The historic district of Prospect Park South, a New York City landmark bounded by Stratford Road on the west, East 17th and East 18th on the east, Church Avenue on the north, and Beverley Road on the south, preserves some of the city's finest freestanding homes. Prospect Park South, landmarked in 1979, is still a neighborhood of large single-family houses, with carefully clipped shrubs and English gardens.
