NY4P: Boro x Boro

Don't let the chilly temperatures fool you - spring is coming! And with it comes New Yorkers for Parks' annual Boro x Boro meetings. Join NY4P as we convene community groups, open space advocates, and other New Yorkers who are passionate about parks.

This year, each borough meeting will focus on turning ideas about improving our parks into action steps we can all feasibly attain, and will end with plenty of time for networking. Get to know each other, share lessons learned, and maybe even identify where you can combine your efforts for maximum impact!
