It’s My Park! Day will take place in St. Nicholas Park on Saturday May 16th from 11am to 4pm. You can arrive at either the 135th Street plaza or at the West 141st Street entrance in St. Nicholas park starting at 11am to sign-up.
We’ll need lots of volunteers for planting flowers and painting fences near the Hamilton Grange. Projects are coordinated by the Friends of St. Nicholas Park and the National Park Service. At 2pm, a National Park Service Ranger will give a tour and answer questions about the new site of the Hamilton Grange. Also at 2pm, “Sleeping Beauty” will be performed by Puppeteers from City Parks Foundation’s Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater on the 135th Street Plaza.
Please remember to wear clothes for working with flowers and paint. We will supply gloves but bring your own work gloves if you have them. The Friends will have water on hand as well. Spread the word and hope to see you there!
