Track & Field

CityParks Track & Field gives New York City kids the chance to learn the basics of the sport, from hurdles and relay races to long jump, shot put and javelin throw.

The program is open to boys and girls ages 5-16 and runs each July and August in parks throughout the five boroughs.

All participating kids have the opportunity to display the basic skills learned at the end of each season at an organized track meet held at Icahn Stadium, the world class sports complex on Randall’s Island. This event is only for registered Track & Field participants.


  • Start dates for lessons at each park vary according to which days of the week lessons are given.

  • CityParks Track & Field is open to New York City residents only.

  • Registration takes place at each park during program hours.
