It’s My Park Day

Fall 2021
Saturday, Oct 16
11 – 11:45am

Park Gardener Richie will instruct children and adults on planting bulbs and beautifying the park! We will have children’s gardening gloves and trowels, but if you have your own please bring them along.

New York City’s Department of Parks and Recreation asks city residents to come out twice a year to support their neighborhood park – once in the fall and once in the spring. At Washington Market, we use this day to teach children a bit about gardening, and enlist their help in planting thousands of bulbs in the fall and hundreds of annuals in the spring. For children who like to get their hands dirty, this is the event for them!



This event is sponsored by The Friends of Washington Market Park.
