Activities for seniors in Prospect Park
Brooklyn Botanic Garden:

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a great place to take your home care client because it provides a quiet and tranquil locale for lunch. You can join a guided tour around the grounds or simply take a leisurely stroll and observe the many different blooming flowers. Be sure to check the schedule for any upcoming events that could add extra excitement for both caregiver and senior. While most of the grounds are wheelchair accessible, the historic nature of the gardens leave some areas difficult to access.
 
Check the Brooklyn Botanic Garden schedule for hours of operation, but they are usually open in the morning and close in the late afternoon. The garden also offers senior discounts with free entry on certain days and at certain times. You can enter the garden on Eastern Parkway, Flatbush Avenue, and Washington Avenue. 718-623-7200.

Prospect Park:

If you want to take a slow, leisurely stroll with your home health care patient, why not go to Prospect Park? Whether it be in a sunny open field of green or on a nature walk through thick woods, the 150-year-old park is all about the scenery. You can take your senior on a tour around Prospect Park Lake, bring them to the dog park, rest from the afternoon sun under the shade of a tree, or simply explore all the sights and sounds in the area.
 
The park’s main entrance is located at Grand Army Plaza and is open from sunup to after sundown. Be sure to check the weather before you go. Bring plenty of water with you in the summer and bundle up in the winter.

Prospect Park Zoo:

If you need a fun, inexpensive trip for your home health care patient, the Prospect Park Zoo is the perfect spot. The zoo is relatively small, allowing you to move through the space rather quickly, but contains plenty of exhibits to make it worth the trip. The zoo is wheelchair accessible and is split into five sections, each one focusing on different parts of the animal kingdom, including sea lions, monkeys, birds, red pandas, reptiles, amphibians, and much more. There is a petting zoo and also a sea lion tank where guests can observe feeding time and watch the animals do tricks.
 
The Prospect Park Zoo is located at 450 Flatbush Avenue and is open from morning until late afternoon. This is the perfect zoo to take seniors to because they offer discounts and won’t expose them to too much commotion like some of the others in New York City. 718-399-7339.
