Prospect Park Alliance hosts a fun and festive day in the park—with a lot to celebrate! It’s Earth Day, the Prospect Park Audubon Center’s 20th anniversary, and the birthday of two legends: naturalist John James Audubon, and…the 200th anniversary of the birth of landscape architect, and Prospect Park’s creator, Frederick Law Olmsted!

Learn more about Olmsted’s important work by viewing select panels from Frederick Law Olmsted: Landscapes for the Public Good, an exhibit that focuses on his life story, major landscape commissions, and their relevance to contemporary society. This exhibit, which is on view through Labor Day, was created as part of a partnership with the National Association for Olmsted Parks, the Olmsted 200 campaign, and the Oak Spring Garden Foundation. You can also take a virtual tour of the entire exhibit.

Activities for all ages celebrate the historic and environmental importance of Prospect Park, Brooklyn’s slice of nature and home to a thriving ecosystem of hundreds of species of plants and animals, 30,000 trees, Brooklyn’s only lake, and its last forest.
