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.

Learn how to keep trees happy and healthy with the NYC Compost Project hosted at Build It Green!NYC!

Help prepare local tree beds along the Vernon Boulevard bike lane in Long Island City for the hot summer months ahead. We'll be weeding, cultivating the soil, and amending tree beds with locally-made compost and mulch to help them thrive in our urban environment.

Please wear sun protection, closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle with you. We will provide water, snacks, gloves, and gardening tools.

RSVP is required; please email to sign up for this event.
