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.

CANCELLED: Freshwater Fishing

Sunday, September 14, 2014

1:00 p.m.

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

This Fishing program has been cancelled.  Please join us for a Family Scavenger Hunt.  Participants will work in groups or by themselves and get to know the park by hunting for some common and uncommon objects and artifacts

Catch-and-release fishing is a great way to get outdoors and discover nature just a few blocks from home.  Our experienced Rangers teach the ethics of fishing and the ecology of our waterways on every fishing program.  Participation in a mandatory safety review lead by a trained Ranger is required.  All equipment is provided.  All fishing programs are catch-and-release only and most programs are first-come, first serve.  Families and children ages 8 and years and older are welcome to participate in fishing programs.
