There are tons of parks in Brooklyn, not only the famous Prospect Park where actual revolutionary battles to place, but small parks and community gardens, "green" areas dotted on blocks, and within neighborhoods.

On any given day you can see packs of international bike racers whizzing through prospect park, our major thoroughfares such as Ocean Parkway offer miles of tree lined paths, you have to remember that this is NYC, so to really get out of the city, you can do an awesome oceanside ride, all along the ocean from Coney Island all the way to Long Island!

There are four designations for areas within parkland.
No dogs allowed: Dogs are not permitted in these areas at any time. These areas include playgrounds, zoos, swimming pools/facilities, bathing areas/beaches*, fountains, ballfields, or on basketball/handball/tennis courts.
Dogs must be on leash at all times: Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times when in these areas.
Dog Runs: Dog runs are large, fenced-in areas for dogs to exercise unleashed. Created with the expertise of a Parks Department landscape architect and volunteers, the runs encourage play while supplying good drainage, safe lighting, and healthy plantings.
Designated Off-Leash Areas: Certain park areas allow dogs to be off-leash from the time the park opens until 9 a.m. AND from 9 p.m. until the park closes. Dog owners/attendants with dogs off-leash in these designated areas must obey all general rules, including having their dog under control at all times, licensing the dog, and carrying proof of the dog's rabies vaccination. Parks that contain designated off-leash areas are listed by borough below. Reminder: Off-leash rules do not apply to park areas where dogs are strictly prohibited (e.g. playgrounds, tennis courts, athletic fields, and basketball/handball courts).
