At City Parks Foundation, our mission is to create vibrant and healthy urban communities for all New Yorkers. Through our kids fitness programs – Get Up & Go, Everyday Play & Family Adventure Races – we activate neighborhood parks with programs for kids & their families. We help New Yorkers stay active, healthy and make new friends.
Ages 6 – 11
July 2 – August 10
Twice Weekly, Free
Our custom-designed program keeps youngsters active all summer with action-packed activities, including obstacle courses, relay races, kickball, frisbee, climbing, golf and more. Although fun is the objective, this program also helps introduce concepts such as goal setting and good sportsmanship.
We also accommodate organized camps and youth groups at specific sites if/when space is available and on a “first-come basis”. Groups can apply here!
Everyday Play, a free, 5-day per week multi-sport program for kids ages 6-17, will return to Kaiser Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn in 2018. The instructional program takes place Monday through Friday from 9:30 am – 12 noon and includes track and field, tennis, golf, soccer, and more. Breakfast and lunch before and after the program is available courtesy of Friends of Kaiser Park and the Alliance for Calvert Vaux Park.*
NEW SITE FOR 2018: Williamsbridge Oval, Bronx Everyday Play is expanding this summer to Williamsbridge Oval in the Bronx and will feature all the same sports activities listed above. After the morning sessions are over, all participants have the opportunity to stay at the park and engage in more free activities offered by NYC Parks’ Summer Sports Experience programs.
