Join us at Red Hook Recreation Center for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Volunteers will be painting and cleaning up the center after it sustained damage by Hurricane Sandy. Registration is required to participate in the service project. For additional information or to register, please click here.     

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. In April 2009, Mayor Bloomberg launched NYC Service, the citywide initiative tasked with setting a new standard for how cities can tap the power of their people to tackle their most pressing challenges. This year, on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day, the Mayor’s Office and City Agencies will be coordinating service projects in the communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. NYC Parks will be participating in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day of Service by offering volunteer projects around the five boroughs, including Red Hook Recreation Center.

ParkRed Hook Recreation Area

NYC Parks is committed to making sure all parks are safe and healthy environments. Parks is continuing to work with EPA as they test the Redhook Ballfields for contamination. In the interim, we expect softball/baseball fields 5, 6, 7 and 8 will be closed until a clean-up plan is completed, and soccer fields 1, 2, 6 and 9 will be tested further.
