Volunteer with NYC Parks 

Partnerships for Parks, a joint initiative of City Parks Foundation and NYC Parks, is coordinating a listing of open-to-the-public, weekend volunteer projects that will begin in mid-March and continue throughout the season across the five boroughs. These projects will be led by various divisions of NYC Parks, as well as by community organizations, offering a wide range of volunteer opportunities including painting, planting, and clearing debris, some of which may be related to Hurricane Sandy recovery.

Please note that there is limited space for each project.  Registration is required to attend any project to ensure that we have sufficient supplies for all participants. Groups may need to contact Partnerships for Parks directly (212.360.1310) to register.


Volunteers should bring water, work gloves, and snacks (optional).  Please dress appropriately for the weather – we recommend wearing layers of clothes that can be soiled or ruined by dirt or paint.  Closed toe shoes are required for safety.

Keep an eye out for more opportunities in April and beyond.  We look forward to seeing you in the parks!
