Annual Report FY 2017

Great Parks Make a Great City -
And You Make Great Parks!

At New Yorkers for Parks we believe that great parks make a great city - but we also know that great people make great parks. Looking back on what we've done, it's clear how much of our success is due to community leaders, industry professionals, generous supporters, and everyone working on behalf of NYC open space. Read our annual report and see what we've accomplished.
