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.

ParkSt. John's Recreation Center

The seating area in the playground behind St. John's Recreation Center will be renovated and the seats have been removed. This project will reconstruct the outdoor sitting area adjacent to the recreation center in St. John’s Park. The sitting area will act as the central hub for the many recreational activities the park offers, as well as a place for rest and passive recreation. In addition to views of the colorful mural on the center’s wall, park goers will enjoy new benches, fencing, picnic tables, game tables and chairs, a drinking fountain, flowering trees and various ornamental plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Spring 2015
