Partnerships for Parks (PfP) invites you to join us at one of our many free and open to the public workshops offered year-round! They are a great way to meet, network, and learn the skills needed to get involved with, build, or sustain your park group.

Upcoming Workshop: Queens Parks Connections

Are you a park volunteer in Queens? Make connections with other community members caring for their local parks and learn about the amazing work park groups are doing across Queens. You will learn how to spruce up your neighborhood park, get funding, and work with NYC Parks staff in your borough. Dinner provided.

Topics Include:

  • An overview of how NYC Parks are built
  • The NYC Parks resources available to you
  • How to work with your local NYC council member
  • Updates from other active community leaders in Queens

Featured Speakers:

  • Vincent Cirrito, Queens team leader, NYC Parks Capital Projects

Vincent Cirrito is a registered landscape architect and team leader for NYC Parks Capital Projects for the borough of Queens. Vincent manages a team of sixty NYC Parks employees including directors, landscape architects, and resident engineers that oversee all capital investment to parks in Queens.

  • Alexa Weitzman & Cynthia Ribadeniera, group leaders, Yellowstone Park Alliance

Yellowstone Park Alliance was first established in January 2016 with the help of group leader, Alexa Weitzman. Their first priority was successfully advocating to Council Member Karen Koslowitz for safer gates for their playground, the plans for which are currently underway. Advocacy quickly grew into further community engagement through “It’s My Park” beautification projects, and special events including a winter nature event, an Earth Day festival, and a basketball tournament. Most notably, Yellowstone Park Alliance acquired three years of Parks Equity Initiative funding totaling $50,000. Alexa and co-leader Cynthia Ribadeniera are passionate about building community around their local green space, Yellowstone Park.

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.

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 workouts, 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.

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

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

Over the course of the 1800s, weddings in New York City evolved from intimate private ceremonies to large, lavish affairs. This exhibition explores the changes in wedding customs as the 19th century progressed, including the trousseau, printed invitations, and the giving of gifts.

Accessories include silk wedding boots, and earrings, corsage, and headpiece of wax orange blossoms.

Over the course of the 1800s, weddings in New York City evolved from intimate private ceremonies to large, lavish affairs. This exhibition explores the changes in wedding customs as the 19th century progressed, including the trousseau, printed invitations, and the giving of gifts.

Highlights include Eliza Tredwell’s 1820 empire-style embroidered cotton wedding dress and Sarah Ann Tredwell’s 1872 silk bridal dress made in Paris, the highest fashion of the post-Civil War bustle period. Accessories include silk wedding boots, and earrings, corsage, and headpiece of wax orange blossoms.

This exhibition is on view on Thursdays through Mondays (except major holidays) from May 3 to July 30. The house is open on Thursdays from noon to 8:00 p.m. and Fridays through Mondays from noon to 5:00 p.m.

An innovative exponent of Latin jazz, salsa, and pop music for five decades, the Grammy-nominated New Swing Sextet plays Cha Cha and Boogaloo tunes that capture the excitement and turbulence of 1960s New York.

Renowned Venezuelan percussionist Luisito Quintero, who has played with such greats as Celia Cruz, Marc Anthony, and Tito Puente and was Grammy-nominated in 2015 for his 3rd Element Latin Jazz album, infuses salsa music with Afro-Caribbean rhythms to create a fresh and dynamic sound.
