Enjoy a picnic with a friend; plan a gathering at the lake or a birthday party at the playground. Attend a tennis league game or a basketball tournament, watch a cricket game, or organize an arts program or a concert. Come on out and plant bulbs or paint benches with the students and volunteers for the citywide “It’s My Park" Day in the spring and fall. Make your voice heard on behalf of your park and help shape its future. Attend community board meetings and budget hearings; write a letter to your council member. Help make sure your park is a first-rate respite for the people in your community.
