Since we were unable to hold our annual gala and concert at SummerStage last 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.

Our annual Tennis Benefit at the US Open raises funds in support of our free CityParks Tennis program, the largest municipal tennis program in the country. While our 2020 in-person Benefit was canceled, we remain committed to providing this program for the continuing development of our young players. Please join Billie Jean King in support of City Parks Foundation—any amount will make a difference.
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.
