Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 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.

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.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

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.

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.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

Contemporary dance company Drastic Action will present “Dis/Location (Fort Tryon),” a site-specific dance exploring the immigrant experience. The dance is rooted in artistic director, Aviva Geismar’s, experience as the child of a Holocaust refugee and in interviews she conducted with NYC immigrants from all over the world. The dance explores the trauma of leaving home, the awkwardness of trying to fit into a new culture and the rituals we use to create a sense of home.

“Geismar’s dead on understanding of social realities is like a poke in the ribs… In life and in Geismar’s dances comedy and tragedy can be hard to sort out.” Tom Strini, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 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.

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.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

Visit the Wyckoff Farmhouse this winter for a free family day!

While our public tours on Fridays and Saturdays are normally geared for an adult audience, we’ve planned engaging, kid-friendly tours, hands-on activities, scavenger hunts, and more on select Saturdays. If the weather’s nice, bring a picnic and enjoy our grounds before or after your visit to the house.

If you plan to visit with children under 10, we recommend visiting before 2 p.m. to take advantage of specially planned activities for younger children.

<![CDATA[Dis/Location (Fort Tryon)]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/06/18/dislocation-fort-tryon1 http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/06/18/dislocation-fort-tryon1 Date: June 18, 2016

Contemporary dance company, Drastic Action, will present “Dis/Location (Fort Tryon),” a site-specific dance exploring the immigrant experience. The dance is rooted in artistic director, Aviva Geismar’s, experience as the child of a Holocaust refugee and in interviews she conducted with NYC immigrants from all over the world. The dance explores the trauma of leaving home, the awkwardness of trying to fit into a new culture and the rituals we use to create a sense of home.

“Geismar’s dead on understanding of social realities is like a poke in the ribs… In life and in Geismar’s dances comedy and tragedy can be hard to sort out.” Tom Strini, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

This project is sponsored by the PSC-CUNY Research Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Fort Tyron Park Trust.
