Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

For more information, please visit our Storm Update page.

Bronx Urban Farms Trolley Tour: Healthy Community

Saturday, October 12, 2013

9:00 a.m.3:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Our fall tour will feature all things wellness: get outside, eat well, and exercise! First, participants will visit the Garden of Happiness, where chickens roam among a plethora of Mexican herbs and garden vegetables, all of which contribute to a community-run market. Participants will do some Zumba to energize them for the day. Then, we will have lunch at Tremont Community Garden, a Bronx Land Trust  garden where seniors grow food. Our last stop will be Jacqueline Denise Davis Garden, which features a rainwater harvesting roof that provides shade and water to gardeners, courtesy of GrowNYC, who also use the space for their Learn It, Grow It, Eat It youth program. Lunch is included.
