#FALLFORNYC & KEEP THE FALL FOLIAGE FUN FLOWING
NYC Parks keeps the autumnal celebrations going with the #FallforNYC social media campaign, fall foliage hikes, and more!
Celebrate the most beautiful time of year in the most beautiful city with NYC Parks! With the season’s fall foliage upon us, today, Parks launched its annual #FallForNYC social media campaign to get New Yorkers in the fall-spirit with socially distant autumnal hikes, a social media contest, fall-themed virtual meeting backgrounds, and more!
#FALLFORNYC SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN
The fall fun is in full-swing, and Parks’ #FallForNYC campaign is encouraging New Yorkers to share their best fall-themed photos from their favorite parks across the city! Capture your favorite fall experiences in city parks on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #FallforNYC, and Parks will share its favorite autumnal photos at @nycparks!
FALL FOLIAGE HIKES WITH THE URBAN PARK RANGERS
As the city’s hundreds of thousands of trees burst into color, come out and enjoy the view by taking a socially distant Fall Foliage Hike with the NYC Parks Rangers! Join the Rangers as they explain why leaves take on their autumnal hues and introduce you to the diversity of trees found in our urban forests in some of the city’s most picturesque parks. The hikes begin on October 10, and will take place at multiple locations across the city throughout the fall season.
Parks’ Fall Foliage page is the city’s best one-stop-shop for fall foliage fun! Throughout the season, Parks will update the page with autumnal content including a fall-themed Spotify playlist and puzzle, virtual meeting backgrounds already available on Twitter and Facebook, and recommendations for the best places to see foliage and enjoy your favorite seasonal activities.
Parks wants all to enjoy the city’s greenspaces during the fall, and urges everyone to follow social distancing guidelines - maintain 6 feet of distance from others, wear a face covering, and stay home if feeling sick. Parks also asks New Yorkers to do their part to keep this city’s greenspaces clean for all - throw trash in designated receptacles, or to take out what you bring in.
