New York City - Boroughs

Brooklyn – Prospect Park

The best place to jog in Brooklyn is without doubt Prospect Park. It’s sort of a mini Central Park. Numerous paths and roads allow you to run continuous stretches of almost 4 miles in one of the quietest and cleanest areas in the city. The roads, paths, fields and allées offer a nice variety. The park itself is filled with benches and water fountains, and numerous other recreation options and events. While it might get a bit crowded in the mornings, Prospect Park is sufficiently large to find an alternative route where you can jog comfortably without having to zigzag through other runners. There are plenty of public transit options in this neighborhood to access different parts of the park.

Our mapped route begin near the Union St. Subway Station and enjoy some of the brownstone-lined streets of Park Slope adjoining the park, and a jaunt by the Brooklyn Public Library and Brooklyn museum. Enjoy the rows of brownstone homes, with their steep stoops and narrow arched doorways. The map below shows additional options for running in the park.
