Are you a park volunteer or supporter in Manhattan? Come to this workshop to meet other community members caring for local parks and hear about the amazing work park groups are doing across Manhattan!

You will learn about ways to spruce up your neighborhood park, get funding, work with NYC Parks staff in your borough, and more. You may not know all the people that play a role in maintaining and supporting your park, so join us to meet some new faces, enjoy a free dinner, and get plugged into the larger network of park volunteers & staff in your borough.

Featured Speakers include:

  • Matt Green, Deputy Chief of Staff, Council Member Corey Johnson
  • Lucy Robson, Director of Research & Planning, New Yorkers for Parks
  • Terese Flores, Regional Manager, NYC Parks
  • Malaika Green and Roberto Barreto, Deputy Chiefs of Recreation, NYC Parks
  • Dawson Smith, Co-Founder, NYC Mountain Bike Association
