The petition is closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!
The Mayor and City Council are in the final stages of negotiating the city budget, and we need to make sure that New York's parks and open spaces aren't left out. Park use is at an all-time high, and New Yorkers depend on our public spaces more than ever before.
Join us in calling on Mayor de Blasio and the City Council to fund critical maintenance staff; protect the GreenThumb community gardening program from major staff and budget loses due to federal budget cuts; add new Partnerships for Parks staff to support community parks groups; hire new Urban Park Rangers; keep our street trees healthy and safe; and support visionary parks projects. Write to your Council Member and the Mayor today!
