PIP will provide you with breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt.

About the New York Junior League Playground Improvement Project
For more than 25 years, the Playground Improvement Project (PIP) has been a New York Junior League signature community project. Our volunteers create safe, beautiful, well-organized, and educational play spaces for children and other members of the New York City community. PIP focuses on sites and parks that need major renovation and have the greatest impact on the surrounding community. Weekend cleanup days include landscaping and repairing the parks. We work with over 700 volunteers each season to help improve the park and make a positive impact on the community. Please reach out to playground@nyjl.org with any questions or if you are interested in making a donation to this cause.

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.

Visit Poe Park Visitor Center for our new exhibit City Birds by Elana Amity. The exhibit will be on view at the Poe Park Visitor Center on Tuedays through Saturdays from March 4 through March 29. There will be an opening reception with a Q&A session on Saturday, March 11.

About City Birds
Raised in the Bronx, Elana Amity visited Poe Park numerous times. As a young child she roamed in and around the cottage, and as a teenager she and her friends danced while a band played in the gazebo. Edgar Allan Poe’s poem "The Raven" was brought to life by her father who loved reciting poetry. Ironically, Poe completed his final revision of "The Raven" while living on 85 Amity Street, now West Third Street, in New York’s Greenwich Village. Amity’s current work includes numerous paintings and monotypes of birds found in New York City’s parks, sidewalks, and window sills. Her birch bark paintings reflect images and textures found in natural settings. Her illustrated poems include the works of Wallace Steven, Edgar Allan Poe, William Wordsworth, and Wilfred Owen.

Artist Bio
New York City artist, Elana Amity, began her career as a teacher and freelance illustrator. She served on the board of the Society of Illustrators for many years. In 1984 she joined the faculty of LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts where she taught illustration, painting and drawing. In 2010 she opened a studio in Manhattan’s Garment District. Her paintings, drawings and prints capture both fleeting and enduring moments oflife in cities, nature and beyond. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and public spaces at home and abroad.

Support your favorite local artists in Botany and Beauty, a group show celebrating art inspired by Snug Harbor’s gardens, plants, and flowers.

Plants give us the air we breathe and the food we eat through the oxygen and sugars produced by photosynthesis. That same process nourished the very origins of life over 400 million years ago. Plants also sustain us on a spiritual level, giving us continuity, peace, and inspiring botanical gardens like Snug Harbor.

In Botany and Beauty, the artists express their gratitude to our local flora through sculpture, painting, printmaking, and mixed media.

Artists: Larry Anderson, Mary Bullock, Anthony Butera, Richard Capuozzo, Brendan Coyle, Steve Foust, Griselda Healy, Patti Kelly, Ann Marie McDonnell, Bill Murphy, John Naughton, Kurt Novak, Andrea Phillips, Vincent Verdi, Universal Temple of the Arts

Curator: Mary Bullock

The exhibition lasts from April 26 to June 25. Gallery admission is $5 ($4 for students/Seniors/Members; free for children younger than 12 years old.) The reception is free. Summer hours are Wednewsday thourgh Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Held annually the first Sunday in May, the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is the world's biggest charity bike ride.

Produced by Bike New York, NYC's premier bicycling nonprofit, in association with the City of New York and the New York City Department of Transportation, this dynamic event draws 32,000 cyclists from around the world to pedal 40 miles through all five boroughs of New York City on totally traffic-free streets. After 40 years, it remains the best way for anyone—New Yorkers and visitors alike—to experience the streets of the Big Apple.

Using proceeds from the Tour, Bike New York has, over the years, taught bike skills to tens of thousands of kids and adults throughout the five boroughs. Our free bike education program is the largest of its kind in the country—every year, more than 17,000 kids and adults learn from us.

How to Register

Registration for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour is required to participate in the event, and is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will open at noon on January 10, 2017. Visit Bike New York's TD Five Boro Bike Tour page to register.

We need your help! NYC Parks and the Fort Tryon Park Trust are conducting a public use study of Fort Tryon Park to help inform management of the park and its resources. We need volunteers to help count park visitors, observe park use patterns, and administer visitor questionnaires throughout the day on Wednesday, May 3 and Sunday, May 7.

This study will enable us to:

  • Learn how many people the park serves
  • Secure data to inform decisions about park maintenance and capital improvements
  • Identify ways to ensure the park best serves the community

This is a unique opportunity to give back to Fort Tryon Park and learn about the park’s impact! To make the study successful, we need volunteers to collect data throughout the park in 2.5-hour shifts. All volunteers will receive a special thank you gift for their participation.

Sign up for a volunteer shift!

All volunteers must be 18 years old or older.
