New Yorkers for Parks and the Play Fair Coalition invite you to:
 
A New Vision for Parks & Open Space
2021 NYC Mayoral Candidate Forum
 
As a proud member of the Play Fair Coalition, City Parks Foundation is pleased to join New Yorkers for Parks and our 300+ partners across the city to invite New York City mayoral candidates to join a conversation on the future of NYC’s parks and open spaces, and the policies we need to create a 21st century, equitable system.
 
It’s been a year of highs and lows. Though New Yorkers turned out in unprecedented numbers for their parks during the pandemic, citywide conditions reached a low point as the Parks Department struggled to weather an $80 million budget cut.
 
Now is the time for New York City to prioritize parks as critical infrastructure. We need a bold, new vision from our next Mayor – to realize a new era in which all New Yorkers enjoy equitable access to safe, clean parks in their communities.
 
Please join us on Monday, April 19th at 6:30pm for a mayoral candidate forum moderated by NY1 News/NY1 Noticias political anchor and report Juan Manuel Benítez.
