Each It’s My Park Day, thousands of New Yorkers come together to volunteer and celebrate their neighborhood parks and public spaces throughout the five boroughs!
It’s My Park Day activities are coordinated by local community groups, City Parks Foundation, and many divisions of the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, including Urban Park Rangers, Historic House Trust, and Recreation. Here’s a sampling of how you can get involved:
Clean up litter in parks, along shorelines, and greenstreets
Rake, mulch, plant bulbs, and care for tree pits
Paint benches, fencing, park houses, and comfort stations throughout playgrounds and parks
Participate in fun, free events for the whole family, including tennis lessons, face painting, historic house tours, nature walks, and more!
