Snow Days

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

We regret that due to the intensity of the storm, Parks will not be able to host a Snow Day today, February 9, 2017. New Yorkers are urged to stay out of City parks until the storm pushes away from the area, which we anticipate will be in early afternoon. Parks are not closed, but we strongly advise New Yorkers to use caution and stay out of parks.

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.
