A cold clear day at Prospect Park in Brooklyn

Waterfall in Prospect Part

Waterfall at Prospect Park on Thanksgiving 2013

Kathy and I donned our coats, scarves and gloves and took a stroll in Prospect Park this morning.  The temperature was 32 but there were gusts of wind that sent a chill deep into our bones with regularity.  We entered the park from the north through The Grand Army Plaza.

The Park is only two blocks from our daughter’s flat so it seemed a shame not to give it a try.  We were impressed with the size of the park.  The 585 acres were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux after they completed Manhattan’s Central Park.  The park includes a 60 acre lake, several streams and waterfalls, abundant walking and biking trails, two playgrounds, a zoo and a botanical gardens.

Our brisk walk was stimulating but we welcomed the return to the warmth of the flat and the smell of wonderful food. I look forward to the future when we can spend time playing with our new grandson at this convenient location.
