All of us at 3r Living are big supporters of the city's parks. For most New Yorkers, parks are the only contact we have with nature on a daily basis. They are our front yards and backyards and they provide us with a little bit of peace in this crazy city we call home.
In Brooklyn, we're especially fond Prospect Park . If you haven't been to Prospect Park lately, you are missing out! Get there soon, seriously. It gets better and better every season. If it has already become one of your favorite places in the city, the Prospect Park Alliance is looking for you, especially if you have children who enjoy its playgrounds and open spaces. (Did you know that more than 60,000 children live within one mile of Prospect Park?)
On Friday, June 2, the Prospect Park Alliance is hosting its second annual "Party for Playgrounds" outdoors at the Park's beautiful Beaux Arts boathouse. The event's highlights include hors d'oevres, live music by the VouDou Jazz Ensemble, electric boat rides, and an auction for such items as: weekend trips, spa days, fine toys and art.
