7:00 - 8:00pm EST


Join New Yorkers for Parks and the Play Fair Coalition – and its 300+ parks advocates across the city – for a conversation with New York City mayoral candidates on the future of NYC’s parks and open spaces and the policies we need to create a 21st century, equitable system.

It’s been a year of highs and lows. Though New Yorkers turned out in unprecedented numbers for their parks during the pandemic, citywide conditions reached a low point as the Parks Department struggled to weather an $80 million budget cut.

Now is the time for New York to prioritize parks as critical infrastructure. We need a bold, new vision from our next Mayor – to realize a new era in which all New Yorkers enjoy equitable access to safe and clean parks in their communities.
