The sign posted on the gates at Dolphin Park on Cabrini Blvd. just south of 181st merely said: Dolphin Park will open in the spring. I guess the recent warm temps and budding trees and flowers still didn't get those gates to open. What a vague and frustrating announcement!
Well, now we have the official opening date: Friday, May 3
This will be the schedule in May (weather permitting): Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 3:30 - 6:30 pm
Starting in June, there will be a daily schedule.
The park is owned by Port Authority but it's actually the West 181 Street Beautification Project that funds the parks. Those funds come from - you guessed it - the community! And that means you and me. To get involved, follow their facebook page. And parents who have photos of their kids playing in the park and are willing to share them are invited to send them to the park director, Jenifer P. Nunez,
Will you be visiting Dolphin Park during its opening weekend?
