Prospect Park serves New York City’s most populated borough with almost 600 acres of rolling meadows, dense woodlands, steep ravines, historic buildings, waterways, and more. This route orbits the park along its car-free outer drive and then cuts through the interior along its central drive. Cycle past ball fields, around a 60-acre lake, and stop off at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens or park zoo if you wish. At the end of your journey, replenish with a picnic and rest on the Long Meadow or by the boathouse. This is an excellent ride for families and all cyclists looking for a respite from urban life.
