City Parks Foundation works in more than 700 parks throughout New York City providing free programs for people of all ages, with a particular focus on children.
City Parks Foundation was founded in 1989 to support the vast majority of New York City parks without access to private resources. By creating arts, sports and educational programs in public parks, and by encouraging community development within public parks as a focal point, they help to revitalize not only parks but also the neighborhoods that surround them.
City Parks Foundation's programs and community-building initiatives now reach more than 600,000 New Yorkers each year, contributing to the renewal of neighborhoods throughout New York City with a particular focus on some of the city's most underserved areas. In all of its programming and activities, City Parks Foundation partners with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to improve neighborhood parks and the communities they serve.
City Parks Foundation is the only independent, nonprofit organization to offer park programs throughout the five boroughs of New York City. They work in over 700 parks citywide, presenting a broad range of free arts, sports and education programs and help citizens support their parks on a local level. Copyright Notice
