NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

At Fort Tryon Park, there is still work to be done to repair damage and remove debris incurred during Hurricane Sandy. Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by helping revitalize your park!  Wear warm layers, and clothes that can get dirty. To get to the park, take the "A" train to 190st street and exit at Bennett Avenue. Walk one block east to Broadway and enter the park at Broadway/Bennett.

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. NYC Parks will be participating in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day of Service by offering volunteer projects around the five boroughs, including at Fort Tryon Park.
