Snow Days

A crowd looks on as a teen sleds down a hill in a park

As the snow falls, NYC Parks is at the ready with winter fun! During times of heavy snowfall, NYC Parks may offer a snow day, which is a day of free organized recreation in several parks throughout the city. Activities may include supervised safe sledding (there will be sleds available at each snow day site), snowman building contests, snow angel contests, friendly snowball fights, music, and complimentary hot chocolate.

To find out if a snow day is in effect, please call 311 or visit this page for updates.
