Forest Park, the third largest park in Queens, needs your help in maintaining the hiking trails that help you explore its 165 acres of majestic oak forest.

Celebrate National Trails Day with us as we help improve the trails around Strack Pond. Volunteers will learn how to install a puncheon, clear invasive plants and help with trail erosion. You can also enjoy a tour led by an Urban Park Ranger.

Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty.

Please bring your own water bottle and snack for this event. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

Please note: Registration for this event is required by May 31. To register, please visit the Forest Park – National Trails Day at Strack Pond registration page.

This event is sponsored by NYC Parks, The Friends of Forest Park and The Forest Park Trust, Inc.
