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

The Conservancy collects over 5 million pounds of trash from the Park each year. Celebrate Earth Month and learn how you can reduce your impact on the planet to the beat of instruments made from trash with Bash the Trash! Be sure to bring your granola bar wrappers and turn your trash into treasure with TerraCycle as they are woven into a picnic blanket! One lucky participant will get to take it home and use it in the Park!

Know Before You Go

Ice Skating RinksLasker Rink (Temporarily Closed)

Lasker Rink is closed due to a refrigeration malfunction. Parks is trying to repair the rink's concrete slab and valves to identify and fix the source of the leak, in the hope of reopening the rink to the public later this season. In the meantime, the Trump Organization along with NYC Parks will work with the community and other area rinks to try to accommodate hockey and skating groups who call Lasker Rink home. Refunds will also be issued to any organizations who reserved and paid for use of the rink during the time that it will be closed.
