Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that sustains the park in partnership with the City, undertakes a variety of restoration and improvement projects throughout Prospect Park. This is made possible through the support of partners in government, as well as private foundations and individual donors.

Capital projects follow the New York City Parks design and construction guidelines. Each phase takes approximately one year, although the construction timeline is based on the scope of the project:

  1. Funded or Partially Funded: Funding has been secured or partially secured, but the project has not yet entered the design phase.
  2. Design Phase: Prospect Park Alliance architects and landscape architects draw up the plans for the project, and guide them through the approval process.
  3. Procurement Phase: the project goes through a public process to assemble the construction team.
  4. Construction Phase: the physical construction of the project takes place.​

Status of Lakeshore Improvements capital project – Partially Funded

Through the advocacy of our community (more than 1,100 community members shared letters of support) and Council Members Hanif, Hudson and Rita Joseph, Council Speaker Adrienne Adams and the Brooklyn Delegation allocated $2 million for the restoration of Lakeshore, which will make environmental and accessibility improvements along the shoreline of the Prospect Park Lake. This support leveraged an additional $1 million from the Mayor, for a total of $3 million in funding toward our $20 million goal. This funding will enable us to create a master plan and execute a portion of the restoration.
