Prospect Lefferts Gardens is an attractive neighborhood in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn. It borders Prospect Park on one side for convenient access to gorgeous walking through natural settings. The streets of the gardens are planted with mature tree cover on either side but do not have a divider between the wide sidewalk and the road. Homes are spaced flush together, and have tiny gated front yards. The generally two or three story homes are ornate, usually with brick or stone construction. These streets are very pleasant to walk, but do not allow much room for walking your dog on a loose leash or being on wheels with your dog.
For the best walking available in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, head towards Prospect Park. The sidewalk bordering the park is wide and planted with beautiful trees on either side, while the park itself offers all sorts of exploration opportunities amid the mature forest.
Walking through Prospect Lefferts Gardens is very pleasant, with the lovely homes and charming tree cover, but you won't be able to let your dog walk on a very loose leash through most of this neighborhood. In order to be on wheels with your dog or allow more freedom, head towards Prospect Park. The park itself offers all kinds of wonderful opportunities, but the sidewalk outside also offers a great place for you to exercise and walk, as there are few intersecting streets. There is also a green space on either side for you to make an emergency stop or get out of the way of pedestrians. Benches studding the long sidewalk provide a place for you to rest as well.
Within the park itself, the opportunities for exploration are endless. Several large ponds provide a beautiful view while extensive walking trails through the forested terrain offer all kinds of different experiences for you to enjoy with your dog.
Prospect Park is a large and beautiful park filled with gorgeous mature trees and lovely lakes. Prospect Leffert Gardens shares a border with Prospect Park, so wherever you begin your walk, you will not have far to go to get to enjoy this park. Many parts of the park are well-maintained and provide places for you to play frisbee or fetch with your dog, but there are sufficient wild and forested areas for lots of wildlife to call this park home.
At the lakes especially, you have a great chance of seeing wildlife both residential and migratory, especially waterfowl like ducks, geese, and swans. In the heavily forested areas, particularly at dawn and dusk, you have a good chance of seeing raccoons or foxes. Whether you see wildlife or not, your dog will have a great time smelling the trails left by animals and exploring all the interesting things the forest has to offer.
