The wonders of the universe are ready to be discovered and New York City parks are the perfect place to stargaze and explore the night sky. 

Our Urban Park Rangers will be your guides to the solar system, discussing the science, history and folklore of the universe. Night Sky programs highlight the history and folklore of the solar system, using the naked eye to locate stars and planets.

Programs are best enjoyed on clear nights, so please call ahead if weather conditions are not clear.
