This event is free and great for all ages and is part of a series of weekly community building events in the park. This event is also a tribute to local resident Elizabeth Ortiz.

Lovie Pignata's public art project activates a blacktop with a bold, painted replica of the nearby Bronx River, highlighting the importance of this waterway. She has also installed retired canoes from local non-profits, which are retrofitted with seating, chessboards, planters, and wayfinding signage. Daylighting will be on view through June 19, 2018.

This exhibition and event are made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

Exercising with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestow health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

2017 brings several new initiatives to the Market. This season, our newly formed food justice collective will introduce food justice activities around the newly constructed food justice mural. The market continues to grow its youth program in order to employ, educate, and empower local teenagers through the Hattie Carthan Urban Agriculture Youth Corps. Through strategic partnerships with local partners, the markets have introduced bus stop and subway advertisements, author readings in our children's garden, and weekly deliveries to Head Start and hospital outpatient centers. Our Healthy Gains through Baking with Whole Grains takes place in the cooking island area in September. The markets will continue to offer individuals and institutions an opportunity to receive local vegetables, local eggs and herbs by subscribing to our alternative distribution programs: The Mixed Basket Weekly and Institutional Basket Program.

“We are a group of engaged citizens whose mission is to preserve the history and beautify Moore-Jackson Cemetery, a protected landmark right in our backyard!”

Moore-Jackson Cemetery is a historic cemetery located in Woodside active from before 1733 to at least 1868. It is one of only a few colonial-era cemeteries in New York City and was designated as a New York City landmark in 1997. We encourage volunteers to help out at the Moore-Jackson Cemetery Revitalization Project. As part of Phase 1, we are getting together for several community cleanup sessions.

Join Phase 1 of the Moore-Jackson Revitalization Project where we will be clearing debris and weeds that have completely taken over. There is a lot of work that needs to be done so the work will be divided up into different work sessions in October before it gets too cold.

If you have any questions, please reach us at moorejacksoncemetery@gmail.com.

Ray Felix presents a dark, yet whimsical tale based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe while residing in the Bronx. Based on both fact and fiction, "Poe is the Raven" gives new light and insight on the secret life of Edgar Allan Poe.

Inspired by his visits to Poe Cottage, Ray Felix became intrigued by spiritual ether surrounding the Poe property and the stories told by the long time
tour guide of the Poe cottage. Felix's imprint "Bronx Heroes," takes stories from American History and transforms them into super heroes. Felix believes this allows Bronxites to appreciate everyday heroes from Bronx history and gain a greater understanding of their borough’s historically rich past.

Please note: The meeting time and location has changed from 10:00 a.m. at St. Ann's Avenue and 149th Street to 9:15 a.m. at the park entrance between St. Ann's Avenue and Eagle Avenue.

This event is being held to create awareness of the rights of immigrants especially the Dreamers whose fate now hangs in the balance after the present administration ended the DACA program. This event will not only bring together the community to run and walk but also to share experiences from those who achieved so much and contributed positively to the community because of the opportunities they were able to access through DACA.

Participants have the choice of running or walking; for those who chose to walk, you are welcome to bring banners, and signs supporting the immigrant community. We also welcome all organizations/nonprofits who would like to partake in the 5K.

We ask for a minimum donation of $10; your donation will not only help host this event but will also help to continue to expand awareness of our work.

After the run, immigrants and refugees will have the opportunity to share their life stories as immigrants in this country.

We hope you will take part in this meaningful event!

Learn about the architecture, landscapes, and ecosystems of the Park through hands-on exploration using Discovery Kits – rugged backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, and hand lenses.

Pre-registration required as space is limited. Families with children ages 5+ only; no groups, please. Please arrive at walk location 15 minutes before the start of the Discovery Walk to allow time for check in and to pick up Discovery Kits.

An exhibition of site-specific artworks by Andrea Arroyo will be on view at Maggie’s Garden and Friendship Garden in Harlem, through October 31, 2017.

“Women with Wings” will feature a series of artworks inspired by the women of New York, including the historical and contemporary women who make Uptown Manhattan a diverse and vibrant community. Each piece, executed in mixed media and repurposed materials, is integrated within the natural environment of plants, grass and other elements of each garden. “Women with Wings” creates a multi-level conversation bridging local culture, nature and history that connects the past and the present.

Artworks include “Maggie’s Pearls of Wisdom”, a piece executed in acrylic, repurposed materials and beads, integrated with a Magnolia tree and inspired by the legacy of Maggie Burnett, beloved Harlem resident and founder of Maggie’s Garden, and “Women in Movement” a piece featuring multiple women silhouettes on multiple wheels hanging from light posts inside the garden.

After moving to Salem, Mass., teenager Max Dennison (Omri Katz) explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani (Thora Birch) and their new friend, Allison (Vinessa Shaw). After dismissing a story Allison tells as superstitious, Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy) who used to live in the house. Now, with the help of a magical cat, the kids must steal the witches' book of spells to stop them from becoming immortal.
