Each year, the City of New York Parks & Recreation Department helps to organize city-wide "It's My Park Day" events. You can find the full list of events here.
This Sunday, you have the opportunity to make a difference in two of our neighborhood parks! This is a great family activity too!

Join the Bennett Park Community Alliance to plant flowers in the children's garden and paint benches throughout the park.

(Jacob Javits Playground & the 190th Subway Terrace)
Join the Friends Committee of the Fort Tryon Trust as they paint the wrought iron fence outside of the A train subway station, clean-up Javits playground and do some weeding and planting.
