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.

At City Parks Foundation, we are dedicated to invigorating and transforming parks into dynamic, vibrant centers of urban life through sports, arts, community building and education programs for all New Yorkers. Our programs — located in more than 400 parks, recreation centers and public schools across New York City — reach 310,000 people each year. Our ethos is simple: thriving parks mean thriving communities.
