What's New

November 30, 2016
We are very excited to announce the release of our 2016 Report Card on Parks: Spotlight on the Community Parks Initiative. The new Report Card provides community groups, park users and other stakeholders with with an independent, comparative assessment of how neighborhood parks located within the CPI zone are performing. These parks strengthen a community, yet many are also in need of real renewal and reconstruction. Learn more and read the report.

New Yorkers for Parks congratulates Mayor de Blasio, Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park, Open Space Alliance of North Brooklyn and others on the city's purchase of the last parcel of land needed to complete Bushwick Inlet Park. This is a huge victory for these advocates who have worked tirelessly to make it happen, and for the surrounding communities. Read the full statement. 

November 15, 2016
Parks groups across the city depend on the support they receive from Partnerships for Parks. But Partnerships staff are often spread too thin, which is why we're asking City Hall to add enough staff to cover all of our parks and communities. Add your name to our testimony to the city council, and show how much you value Partnerships. Learn more and add your name.

The 2016 Report Card on Parks: Spotlight on the Community Parks Initiative
The 2016 Report Card on Parks assesses 35 "neighborhood" parks across the five boroughs. These parks are larger than those targeted by the Community Parks Initiative, strengthening local communities by providing areas for active recreation, connection with nature, and more. We found that many of these parks are also in need of real renewal and reconstruction. Read the Report Card.

2015 City Council District Profiles
City Council District Profiles provide comprehensive information about open space resources, including a district map of all public open spaces and other quality of life measures, such as health and socioeconomic statistics. Each Profile provides rankings for the number of residents per acre of park/playground, access to a park entrance, and capital spending on park in each district. The Profiles are a proven tool for communities advocating for better conditions and funding for their parks and open spaces. Find your Council District's Profile.

The 2015 Report Card on Beaches 
New York City's eight swimming beaches have made steady overall progress since New Yorkers for Parks began tracking them in 2007, despite the interruption of Hurricane Sandy. There is more work to do, though, to make these beaches consistently great. Read the Report Card.
