If you think the Carousel, zoo and acres of romp-worthy fields make Prospect Park a child-friendly place, well… you’re right, and there’s about to be more for the summer. Starting today, and on every Friday through August, the park will host Heart of Brooklyn’s Family Fridays, a weekly day of animals, education and snacks at the park’s Children’s Corner (entrance at Ocean Ave., Flatbush Ave. & Empire Blvd.). Family Fridays will feature the Brooklyn Public Library’s Kidsmobile, a veritable “library on wheels,” and Animal Tales, a literacy program based on animals from the Zoo. The Carousel ($1.50 per ride; $8 book of 6 tickets) also will be open, as will the Zoo (Adults $7, Kids $3)  and the Lefferts Historic House (Free) for a trip to simpler times.

Visit Heart of Brooklyn for the full Family Friday Schedule.
