CityParks Play has a central role in activating City Parks Foundation's mission to create vibrant and healthy urban communities through dynamic programming in parks. We help New York seniors 60+ stay active and healthy through our Senior Fitness program, offering free tennis lessons, yoga and fitness walking in parks across the city. To recognize these seniors who embody our mission and inspire others to become active in their park, we are honoring participants with the Humana Player of the Week Award.
