The Community Parks Initiative is investing more City resources in parks in communities that need it most. NYC Parks will spend $130 million to rebuild 35 community parks, upgrading playgrounds, ball courts, green spaces and more, using 21st-century designs and materials. To do this, we are looking for neighborhood input and feedback on the kind of park you need and want to see.

For more information or to sign up to participate, visit nyc.gov/parks, email nichole.henderson@parks.nyc.gov or call 718.520.5913. RSVP as soon as possible as we will be serving refreshments to participants.
