Urban Park Rangers

Park rangers lead a canoeing program in a lake in the park

Our Urban Park Rangers are full of knowledge about history, astronomy, animals, plants, and more. Attend a Ranger-led event with your family and see how much fun learning can be! 

Free Pop-Up Programs

This summer, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we're offering FREE pop-up programs with limited attendance for you to have a safe and enjoyable time in parks. Based on New York State guidance for sports and recreation during COVID-19, we’ve put protocols into place to keep our participants and staff safe and healthy. We're asking everyone to help us stay safe:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance between households
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands

Additionally, we encourage participants to bring their own hand sanitizer to our programs.  

Some programs may be modified, rescheduled or cancelled due to weather, health, or safety concerns. For a schedule of upcoming events and additional details, please call the following numbers:
