Celebrate the culmination of the NYJL’s 2013 Playground Improvement Project as the NYJL returns storm-damaged sections of Fort Tryon Park to its community, and celebrate all the hard work that volunteers, NYC Parks, and the Fort Tryon Park Trust have done over the spring.
For five weekends in April and May, in collaboration with NYC Parks staff, volunteers devoted hours to various projects including gardening, painting, a wide-scale lawn restoration, and the transformation of Inwood's Payson Park House into a functional gathering space for community members. Thanks to the hard work of the NYC Parks staff as well as volunteers from NYJL, community members, and corporate groups who came out to help, the park has been revitalized as a safe, beautiful, and educational play space for the children and families of Washington Heights and Inwood. 

Held at Anne Loftus Playground inside Fort Tryon Park at Broadway/Riverside, this will be a medieval-themed party with lots of crafts and games for children. All community members, along with friends and family, are invited to attend.
