Open Space Dialogues 6

Open Space Dialogues:
Healthy City, Active Places

Join Us Wednesday, January 9

​There are so many reasons why New York City neighborhoods need parks and open spaces. But making sure that parks are havens for active uses and physical recreation isn't easy. This installment of the Open Space Dialogues explores the ways New Yorkers have, and want to, create opportunities for active recreation and health. Panelists will present and respond to examples from New York City's government, citywide nonprofits, and neighborhood groups.
