Find projects in the Bronx to join in on!

How does It’s My Park Day work? Partnerships for Parks invited dedicated community groups to organize It’s My Park Day volunteer projects and free cultural events in their neighborhood parks. Volunteer activities range from horticulture to painting projects, along with a variety of free events, including kayaking, dance performance, and much, much more!

YOU can help! On It’s My Park Day, Partnerships for Parks invites you and your family to help care for and celebrate our parks! Registration is not required – all you need to do is find a local park that’s hosting an It’s My Park Day activity and show up at the park that day. It’s that simple. It’s My Park Day is a great opportunity to meet local park groups that need year-round help from caring neighbors like you!

It’s My Park Day activities are coordinated by local community groups, City Parks Foundation, and many divisions of the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, including Urban Park Rangers, Historic House Trust, and Recreation. Here’s a sampling of how you can get involved:

-Clean up litter in parks, along shorelines, and greenstreets

-Rake, mulch, plant bulbs, and care for tree pits

-Paint benches, fencing, park houses, and comfort stations throughout playgrounds and parks

-Participate in fun, free events for the whole family, including tennis lessons, face painting, historic house tours, nature walks, and more!
