Saturday, May 18th: It’s My Park Day 2013

Join thousands of New Yorkers who come together each It’s My Park Day season 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 are a few examples of the many projects that you can join:

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!
