Heather Lubov: new Executive Director of City Parks Foundation


From the new Executive Director of City Parks Foundation:

I am enormously excited to be on board working to support the hundreds of programs that City Parks Foundation provides to dedicated fans and supporters like you.  As a born-and-bred New Yorker, a culture consumer, and an avid walker who takes advantage of the many fantastic opportunities our city offers, I have attended countless SummerStage concerts over the years and have benefited from many of our City’s parks and green spaces.  So I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to the City that I love and to an organization from which I have directly benefited.

As Executive Director I will work tirelessly to raise awareness for and money to support the work of City Parks Foundation, work that helps to transform our City’s parks into active spaces for healthy and vibrant communities.  We want to see more golf clubs and tennis racquets put into the hands of children who will learn the discipline of a sport while gaining self-esteem.  We want more young people to participate in environmental education programs that help develop an appreciation for science and teach them to become stewards of our City’s precious natural resources. We want more communities to experience the energy of live performance — be it music, dance, opera, or the spoken word.  And we want to provide more neighborhood volunteers with the tools and resources needed to help foster change within their own communities.

Each year City Parks Foundation presents programs of the highest quality to hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers across the city.  In 2015, we’ll be celebrating the 30th anniversary of our iconic festival, SummerStage. I look forward to meeting you at a concert, at a track meet, or at a neighborhood visioning program. See you in the park!

Heather Lubov

Executive Director, City Parks Foundation
