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

Celebrating Our Seniors is a citywide family-fun day that tells the story of New York through the eyes of its longest lived citizens, our seniors. It’s a time to honor the beauty of intergenerational relationships. Join this afternoon of oral histories, crafts, interactive activities, music, and dance. All ages are welcome.

Looking to the past to honor the present, the highlight of the day is the celebratory “Walk Through Time.” This pre-set path highlights the New York experience one decade at a time starting with the 1940’s. Come tell us your story and share it with other generations.

You can participate in as much or as little of the event as you like, at your own leisure.  Advance registration is free. Sign up today at: www.anyf.org/celebrateseniors.

Baseball FieldsProspect Park

The Long Meadow Ballfields will be closed at Prospect Park for construction. The reconstruction of the Long Meadow Ballfields is a multi-phase project encompassing 34 acres of fields, paths and woodlands. The project incorporates contemporary storm water management techniques that support our goal of capturing and retaining storm water runoff. These improvements will also help to filter runoff before it enters our watercourse. Designed to revitalize the park’s sporting community, the first phase will restore Field One, pedestrian and bridle paths, drinking fountains, benches, and include new tree plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
