Prospect Park was a saving grace for locals like us during lockdown, we were lucky to have this oasis as our backyard. Due to the pandemic, the park lost critical funding and has had to make painful cuts in staff and services. At a time when Prospect Park is more important to our wellbeing and our community than ever, we made this walk to express our love for the park. While the tour is free, please support the Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that safeguards this treasure.

Pastoral Paradise was written and produced by Rebecca Chaisson.
