Like Manhattan's Central Park, Prospect Park can be easily walked through within an hour, making it not terribly impressive for an urban getaway. Nevertheless, Prospect park has plenty of wide open lawn areas for ball games and kite flying. Also, the roads through the park are very popular with cyclists, some of whom seemed ready for criterium road racing. This is also a better place to rollerblade than Central Park. There are a number of other recreational activities here sponsored by the New York Parks and Recreation. Like all New York City Parks, Prospect Park is closed from 1-5AM daily. See link for directions, depending on where you are coming from and where in the park you want to go, but an easy stop of the Metro subway is from the Grand Army Plaza station, then simply walk south.
