New York City’s recreation centers and indoor pools remain closed to the general public until further notice to provide COVID-19 related services as well as free childcare options for children who are scheduled for blended learning. To learn more or to apply for the childcare program, please visit the New York City Department of Education’s Learning Bridges program page.

Once we reopen, NYC Parks will extend all existing recreation center memberships to cover the length of time we are closed to the general public.

The Department of Environmental Protection is advancing a project in Roy Wilkins Park to remove accumulated sediments and restore the original depth of the pond, reestablish its small island, and build a new bioretention basin garden upstream within the park to capture storm water runoff from Merrick Boulevard. Some portions of open landscape areas between the pond and Merrick Boulevard will be closed to the public to accomplish the work.
Anticipated Completion: 01/30/2021
