Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Saturdays, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels. Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

NYC Audubon experts lead the way as we marvel at quirky but logical bird behavior and delicate feathers in exquisite patterns.

Influential birders such as Roger Tory Peterson and Allan D. Cruickshank learned their craft on Van Cortlandt Park’s ecologically diverse grounds, and these walks celebrate the tradition set by them. Participants will look for resident and migrant species and discuss a wide range of avian topics. No registration necessary. No limit. Free. When birding on your own, check the Nature Sightings log in front of the Nature Center before you head out. At the end of walks, please add your sightings to the log, so others may be aware of recent nature happenings in the park.

Bring binoculars if you have them and wear sturdy shoes!

Help plant trees along the beautiful Muskrat Cove.

Muskrat Cove is a hidden sliver of woodland named for a population of muskrats inhabiting the forested stream banks in the area. The little known picturesque oasis has well tended pathways and careful plantings. Local groups are continuously working to beautify the area and restore its ecological integrity by removing graffiti, cleaning the area of debris, eradicating invasive plants, and planting hundreds of native trees and shrubs to reestablish the stream banks.

Just outside of the Metro-North Woodlawn parking area, a paved path heads into the cove. The park is accessible through an opening in the guardrail.

Be a part of this great effort to help this park remain the gem of the northern Bronx.

Join a free public tour of this historic U.S. Navy vessel that was originally deployed during Vietnam and later used to train U.S. helicopter pilots.

In advance of construction of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Marina, The Baylander IX-514 will open for tours as part of a larger program designed to highlight the history of the ship and its extraordinary background, as well as facilitate the Marina’s community boating program. This marks the first time in its history that the Baylander is open to the public.

The Baylander IX-514 131-foot vessel began its service in Vietnam in 1968. In 1986 the Baylander was transformed into a helicopter trainer for the U.S. Navy, Marine, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard. For more than 10 years the ship provided a cost-effective training platform for single-spot deck landings, covering both day and night operations. Since 1986 the Baylander completed 120,000 error-free helicopter landings with a record of 346 landings in one day in June 1988.
