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.

Join acclaimed photographer Beth Moon, author of Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees, as she delves into her artistic process and the experience of traveling around the world to photograph these natural relics. It is only in the rarest and clearest of nights that we can look up at the sky to find a sprinkling of twinkling stars.

Surrounded by the bright lights of humanity, the infinite majesty of the night sky can only be truly enjoyed by those devoted enough to seek it. Critically-acclaimed photographer Beth Moon’s own appreciation of cosmos inspired her quest, spanning from continent to continent, to some of the darkest corners of world, where constellations and nebulas shine more brightly. Moon’s Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees captures the boundless beauty of trees under the night sky, seemingly undisturbed by humans. Discover her relentless journey—undeterred by knee-high mud, windstorms, and distance—to reveal the rich hues of the night that are often too faint to be seen by the naked eye.

Beth Moon is a photographer based in New York who has gained international recognition for her large-scale, richly-toned platinum prints. Her prints are held in numerous public and private collections and have appeared in more than sixty solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Italy, England, France, Israel, Brazil, Dubai, Singapore, and Canada, receiving widespread critical acclaim. With this new book, she explores color photography for the first time.

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.

Calling all park lovers! This spring, the New York Junior League's Playground Improvement Project committee ("PIP") invites you to join them in rolling up your sleeves to help revitalize Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem.

Throughout five weekends in April and May PIP committee members, New York Junior League volunteers, and community volunteers will spend a day in the park gardening, landscaping, painting, and completing other tasks to help spruce up this highly used space. PIP will provide you with breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt.

All volunteer days are rain or shine.

Registration closes when capacity is reached or the Wednesday prior to that weekend's park days.

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.
