Since we were unable to hold our annual gala and concert at SummerStage this year, we presented SummerStage Jubilee—a benefit concert film featuring original performances by Sting, Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash, Trey Anastasio, Leslie Odom Jr., Emily King, PJ Morton, and Rufus Wainwright. Additional special guests and cultural icons including Billie Jean King, Ryan Seacrest,H.E.R., and Jimmy Fallon joined together to celebrate and support City Parks Foundation’s free programs in parks.

While we are unable to hold our annual Tennis Benefit at the US Open this year due to the pandemic, we still need your support to keep CityParks Tennis, the largest municipal tennis program in the country, free for all. In lieu of buying benefit tickets to attend the US Open this year, we ask that you make a contribution to support the development of our young players. Please join Billie Jean King in support of City Parks Foundation—any amount will make a difference.
The annual Seniors Fitness Benefit, a reception and musical performance at a beautiful rooftop cocktail lounge, supports our Seniors Fitness program, which offers free tennis lessons, revitalizing yoga, and walking programs to seniors in parks throughout New York City.
CityParks Seniors Fitness promotes healthy minds and bodies by bringing our senior neighbors into their local parks for vital social interaction, life-changing physical activity, and community activities — all free of charge.
This event helps provide free golf instruction at 12 local parks as well as two golf centers designed just for youth. CityParks Golf teaches kids how to play golf and experience the many positive life skills learned by the game. Free use of equipment is available for all participants.
