How lucky can Brooklyn residents get? There are several outstanding, historic and one still under construction, but amazing and very worth seeing park in Brooklyn New York today. Let's start with Prospect Park, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux after they completed Manhattan's Central Park in Manhattan. Prospect Park has an amazing bicycle path that twists and turns all through the park. This path is a bike riders dream and bicyclists can be seen year round riding through the park's wonderful bike path. There are pastures and lakes and an amazing abundance of gorgeous trees throughout the park. There are many events, cultural and otherwise held in Prospect Park, especially in The Spring and Summer time such as Bird watching, The Greenmarket, Dog events, Craft activities, Googa Mooga festival - a celebration of food and music on May 20th, The Food Truck Rally (a favorite of many) on May 28th, The Rhythm Revue Jazz and R&B concert June 25th and much much more!

Let's go from the historic to the still under construction new amazing Brooklyn New York Park. I'm talking about The Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge. This one of a kind park begins at Atlantic Avenue on the waterfront and stretches all the way down to Front Street in Dumbo. Even though this park is still under construction, what is there is well worth the trip. Gorgeous, sprawling lawns, abundant benches to sit on with breathtaking views of the city, a bike path and a variety of different style landscapes to explore. Once you reach Front Street in Dumbo, you are greeted with a choice of The Ice Cream Factory, The River Cafe and Grimaldi's Pizza. Not too shabby! The Park is taking longer to be completed than planned, but it was a long time in coming and it will be something to behold when completed.
