Don't let the chilly temperatures fool you - spring is coming! And with it comes New Yorkers for Parks annual Boro x Boro Meetings. Join the NY4P staff as we convene community groups, open space advocates, and other people passionate about parks.
This year, each borough meeting will focus on turning ideas about improving our parks into action steps we can all feasibly attain, and will end with time for networking and getting to know your fellow neighborhood park advocates. Get to know each other, share lessons learned, and maybe even identify where you can combine your efforts for maximum impact!
These meetings will culminate in our citywide meeting which will bring all the five boroughs together to reflect on our action steps and identify the roles our local elected officials can play in assisting us.
If you love your neighborhood park and are brimming with ideas to help improve it, then these meetings are a perfect fit for you! Use the links below to attend the meeting in your borough, and don't forget to join for the final citywide meeting in May.
All meetings take place from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, with check in from 6:00 - 6:30. Light refreshments will be served. All meetings are family and kid-friendly.
