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.

The Greenbelt Native Plant Center is the only municipal native plant nursery in the country. It is a 13-acre greenhouse, nursery, founder seed and seed bank complex owned and operated by NYC Parks. 

Over the past sixteen years, the center has grown hundreds of thousands of plants from locally collected seed of the city's indigenous flora for use in restoration, and community planting projects. Currently they are developing bulk native seed mixes for use throughout the five boroughs. 

Come join us for a tour and help transplant some seedlings in our greenhouses!

Registration is required.
