Hiking is the ultimate way to enjoy the outdoors and reduce stress.  

On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest.  Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from Light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths) to moderate, to vigorous. 

For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.

PlaygroundsSeba Playground

Seba Playground will be closed to reconstruct the current Seba Tot Lot into a playground for children of all ages. The new design will enlarge the toddler area by adding a custom spray shower, seating, and two new tot play units. Additional play spaces will also be added for 5 to 12 year olds, and will include a large accessible play unit, a second spray shower and seating area. These two play areas will be joined by 15 additional swings for both age groups. The site will also feature an accessible drinking fountain, attractive plantings, and a bicycle rack.

The United States Army Corps of Engineers has resumed pumping sand onto Rockaway Beach in efforts to repair and restore the beach. Access to the beach area from Beach 61st Street to Beach 19th Street may be limited while the pumping operation continues. The Corps expects sand placement work to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting. Swimming is not permitted at Rockaway Beach, or any NYC beach, after Labor Day.
