While Brooklyn's Crown Heights used to be infamous for its high poverty and crime rates, the neighborhood is experiencing a much-deserved revival thanks to its lovely architecture and incredible cultural attractions like the Brooklyn Children's Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum and the northeastern edge of Prospect Park.

Located in the heart of Crown Heights, Brower Park has been an outstanding educational and recreational resource for children for over a century. The City of Brooklyn purchased what is now the southern portion of the park in 1892 and improved the property within two years. The 1894 Annual Report of the Brooklyn Department of Parks boasted that "Its [the site's] natural advantages were many, and it is now one of the prettiest small parks in the City." Rolling terrain, dense shrubs, robust native trees, curving walks, and an iron ornamental fence contributed to the beauty of what was then called Bedford Park.

Crown Heights sits close to Prospect Park and neighborhood residents are free to enjoy outdoor concerts in the summer, ice skating in the winter and, of course the beautiful Botanical Gardens and the Brooklyn Museum.
