Do you want to find new ways to improve your Queens neighborhood by caring for parks?

At Partnerships for Parks, we help people, organizations, and government work together to support NYC parks, gardens, trees, and other green spaces. At this workshop, you will meet other Queens volunteers who support parks, and find out about resources that will help you reach your goals.

Topics will include:

  • Who you need to know in Queens Parks
  • How you and your neighbors can spruce up your park with an “It’s My Park” project
  • Ways to join together with neighbors who also care about your parks.

Meet staff members, and hear stories from experienced volunteers and community leaders.

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. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

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.

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.

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.

About Summer Camp Activities

Key curriculum includes:

For children ages 10 to 14:

Remote Control Servo
In this project, we will use the Arduino to examine and decode signals from a remote control, and then use them to control a robot you build.

E-Textiles
Have you ever seen clothing with built-in lights? This may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, electronic textiles or E-textiles really exist. In this project, you will build a light-up dance glove to put on your own light show at our culminating event.

For children ages 6 to 9:

Light Tracking Robot
Sometimes engineers get ideas to build robots from animals in nature. There are robot dogs, robot snakes, robot birds, robot cheetahs, and even tiny robotic insects! In this science project, you will build a robot insect of your own. The robot will automatically drive toward a light source, mimicking a behavior called phototaxis, seen in some insects.

LED Bracelet with Iconic Imagery
Design an LED bracelet with your favorite iconic imagery. In this project, you will explore the intersection of art and technology through printmaking and circuitry. Choose from templates of your favorite super heroes, sports teams and even buildings. Understand the basics of circuitry so that you may take you art work to the next level and develop your knowledge of the engineer–design process.

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.

For the first time, Poe Park Visitor Center is highlighting artwork created by NYC Parks youth through an art festival. This three-week art festival will include a variety of artwork created, from September of 2016 through April of 2017, by children who attend NYC Parks youth programming at recreation centers throughout the five boroughs.

Artist and Recreation Specialist Laura Alvarez created monthly curriculums, which were implemented by the recreation team throughout the year. Each lesson plan was based on a famous artist’s work, allowing for cohesion in the exhibit, while also allowing the children to use various styles of art in their own work.

Hiking is the ultimate way to enjoy the outdoors and a fun way to reduce stress. Regardless of the intensity level, it is a great way to burn calories and stay fit.

On our nature hikes, you can take an hour to unplug from the world and immerse yourself in the wonders of nature.

Moderate hikes are longer, faster-paced walks on rugged terrain. For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.
