Parks Return to Office Plan (Local Law 75 of 2020)

Our staff is committed to the City's restart in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. As per Local Law 75 of 2020, we are releasing a report affirming our compliance with the Agency Return to Office Plan. As per the legislation, the report will be available until the mayor's emergency executive order has expired.

Park Maintenance Reporting (Local Law 98 of 2015)

Our staff spends extraordinary time and effort to keep our parks clean, safe, attractive, and functional for the public. As per Local Law 98 of 2015, we produce a report each year that shows how the work of our staff is distributed across the parks system. Since 2017, these reports compile the day-to-day maintenance, trade-related, and specialized staff work tracked for each park; the costs of work completed by our tradespeople and specialized crews; and Parks Enforcement Patrol staffing. By releasing these reports, we aim to provide the public a better understanding of how their parks are run, and to engage with them on improving how we operate.

In conjunction with the release of this report, Parks also makes the underlying report data publically available. Both AMPS repair records and Daily Tasks cleaning records are available on the NYC Open Data Portal. Given the sensitive nature of the payroll information, only an aggregate version has been made available and is published below with the corresponding fiscal year’s report.
