Partnerships for Parks is in the process of planning our next conference for Spring 2015. Details to be announced.
This free fellowship program supports community-based parks groups and individual volunteers in achieving sustainable success through in-depth project and/or group development.
This joint project of Hester Sreet Collaborative and Partnerships for Parks helps New Yorkers participate in the design of their parks.
We make grants to community groups working in NYC parks to strengthen their outreach, membership, and program-planning capacity.
This multi-year initiative works in historically under-served neighborhoods, and galvanizes support for and commitments for improved parks.
Each spring and fall, join thousands of New Yorkers to volunteer and celebrate their neighborhood parks and public spaces.
This new project will bring hundreds of new trees to Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside over the next three years.
