Our city’s parks are vital community resources that help support New Yorkers’ physical and mental health. At City Parks Foundation, our mission is to encourage New Yorkers to use their neighborhood parks by offering free environmental education, arts, sports, and community-building programs that bring people into their local green spaces. While our programming is temporarily suspended and moving online, our city’s parks remain more vital than ever as places to seek refuge, to exercise, and to stay healthy.
We look forward to a time when we can all be back out in parks, celebrating New York’s unique and diverse communities.
We know that city parks will continue to thrive when all New Yorkers get involved.
