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.

MillionTreesNYC Volunteer Planting Day Presented by the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee and the NFL

Saturday, October 19, 2013

9:00 a.m.1:00 p.m.

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

Every spring and fall, thousands of enthusiastic and environmentally–minded New Yorkers volunteer with MillionTreesNYC to plant young trees in public parks. This October, for the first time ever, MillionTreesNYC will be planting all 20,000 trees in one day in one park! Join us at Rockaway Community Park, Queens to make New York City greener and greater, and to build a more resilient and vibrant coastline.

For two years, NYC Parks removed invasive plants to prepare Rockaway Community Park for this day. Then, last October, Superstorm Sandy hit this 253-acre park full force. We now need your help to plant a native coastal forest to restore this community park.

Registration for this event is required.
