This Weekend in NYC Parks

The summer is running out so make sure you get out and get involved in some of these great activities that NYC Parks is presenting.

You're gonna be tired after this weekend!!

Friday, August 19

New York is a city of water, and of course, that means we're surrounded by fish! With events from the Urban Park Rangers and other partners, NYC Parks can teach interested anglers how to fish safely and ethically at lakes and rivers in all five boroughs. If you're an experienced angler, check out the Parks sport fishing page for good locations and program information.
