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.

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.
