It’s My Park! Day at Prospect Park

It’s My Park! Day at Prospect Park

Saturday, May 15

9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.

What: Hundreds of Volunteers will help care for 585-acre Prospect Park as part of a citywide effort to tidy up and support our urban greenspaces on It’s My Park! Day.

When and Where: Volunteers will meet at 9:30 a.m. for registration at the Wollman Rink at Prospect Park. To get ready for the work ahead, members of Raízes do Brasil Capoeira Brooklyn (a local martial arts studio) will lead volunteers in warm-up exercises.

Around 10:15 a.m. Volunteer groups will then head to 10+ locations around the park, including the Lake edge, Concert Grove, Park Circle, the Lullwater and BBQ areas (see our interactive park map).

From approx 10:30 a.m. until around 1:30 /2 p.m., volunteers at these locations will be doing various projects such as cleaning and trash pick-up, weeding and removal of invasive plant species, raking and mulching.

The public can call (718) 965-8960 for more information or email
