Adopt-a-Park

White Playground

Show your organization’s commitment to its community and the environment with a high-visibility project with NYC Parks!

Whether it is renovating a beloved playground, resurfacing a basketball or tennis court, or turning unused, paved areas into green spaces with flowers and trees, you can contribute to a healthier community and revitalizing New York City.

Your donation will improve the lives of the 8 million New Yorkers and visitors who rely on New York City’s parks for entertainment, recreation, and relaxation.

Donations of $10,000 or more will be recognized by an NYC Parks-produced sign for one year.

Please call (212) 360-8144 or email AdoptAPark@parks.nyc.gov to learn more.
