Although Prospect Heights is a relatively small Brooklyn neighborhood, it's packed with major attractions, like the northwestern corner of Prospect Park—home to the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden—and the central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Meanwhile, Barclays Center offers sporting events and kid-friendly entertainment like Disney on Ice shows year-round. The tree-lined streets with cozy brownstones, and plethora of kid-friendly cafes, bars, shops and restaurants (including hot ice cream parlor Ample Hills Creamery) make Prospect Heights particularly popular with families.
Our Prospect Heights Guide highlights the very best places to eat, play and experience with kids in the neighborhood. We hope you enjoy getting to know the area with your family.
