Do you want to give back to your parks? NYC Parks and our hundreds of partners hold organized events throughout the year asking New Yorkers to pitch in and paint, clean, rake, and generally take care of our city's great and vast park system. Groups and individuals are welcome at volunteer events across the city.

Looking for more volunteer opportunities? Reach out to one of our many partner organizations, or visit Partnerships for Parks, a public-private partnership between NYC Parks and City Parks Foundation that manages our network of volunteers.
