VISITOR INFO

Welcome to the Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Center at Lakeside Prospect Park.  Lakeside is the largest and most ambitious project in Prospect Park since its creation nearly 150 years ago. Spanning 26 acres, this $74 million restoration by the Prospect Park Alliance transformed the southeast corner of the Park into a popular scenic and recreational destination. 

 

Lakeside offers year-round seasonal activities, dining, and special events. From ice skating on our two outdoor winter rinks to cooling off in our summer Splash Pad to exploring the Park on boats and bikes, Lakeside is Brooklyn’s premier recreational destination. Bluestone Lakeside Cafe offers indoor and outdoor seating set against a panoramic view of Lakeside’s rinks and Prospect Park Lake.  Bluestone features a distinctive menu with a full spectrum of dining options, from light bites to hearty and healthy chef-inspired sandwiches and desserts.
