This Weekend In Parks


Join us this Saturday at Fort Totten for "Denizens of Darkness," as we explore the after-hours aerial world of bats, one of nature’s most misunderstood animals. We will observe bats hunting in their natural habitat and learn how they are able to find their prey in the dark. Meet at 8 p.m. at the fort entrance, north of the 212 Street and Cross Island Parkway intersection. For more information, call (718) 352-1769.


Come out to La Roca Community Garden this Saturday for the Peace and Justice Festival. Check out local hip-hop artists such as Rebel Diaz and more. All are welcome. The festivities begin at 4 p.m. at 160th Street and Elton Avenue. For more information, call (646) 250-4405.


Names like Putnam, DeKalb, Lafayette, and Kosciusko are part of our urban-built landscape. Who were they, and what role did they play here in the birth of our nation? Join the Rangers for a special history walk and talk at Fort Greene Park. Meet at the Visitor’s Center at 1 p.m. For more information, call (718) 722-3218.
