Strong communities make NYC great. But what makes our communities strong? When New Yorkers use NYC’s parks and green spaces as places to celebrate, recreate, and learn, neighborhoods become vibrant communities.

Since 1995, Partnerships for Parks has been supporting these park-related community groups to help make NYC thrive.

There will be a free raffle for all attendees with fabulous prizes!

Conference workshop topics include:

- Fundraising
- Gardening
- Volunteer project planning
- Working with the media
- Social media
- Legal basics, including 501(c)3 status

- Community involvement in park design
- Park group success stories
