MORE THAN 200 WAYS TO GET INVOLVED IN YOUR PARKS


Looking for ways to take action in your community? Partnerships for Parks can give you more than 200 ways to participate and show your appreciation for our City parks through It’s My Park! Day. Thousands of New Yorkers come out to this semi-annual, citywide event to plant, seed, paint and clean at more than 190 parks in all five boroughs.

"It's My Park! Day gives New Yorkers who want to pitch in a great opportunity to do so," said David Rivel, Executive Director of City Parks Foundation. "With projects to suit every interest organized throughout the five boroughs, it’s easy to get involved and connect to your local park."

Participating projects are organized by local community groups, corporate partners, Parks & Recreation, and City Parks Foundation. This Saturday, you can get involved in It’s My Park! Day by participating in a scheduled volunteer project, participating in one of the many free events planned for the day, or by simply enjoying the many free and exciting amenities your local parks have to offer.

Selected sites in each borough are listed below. To see a full list of participating sites, please visit www.itsmypark.org or call 311 for more information.
