Five Borough Parkstorming Tour
On Saturday, August 13th we kicked off our exciting 5 Boro Parkstorming Tour!
Each week leading up to the primary, Parks1 will visit a different borough in order to bring attention to the needs of that borough's parks.
We believe that all parks in all neighborhoods throughout the entire city deserve attention and we're going to get candidates for elected office to believe it too.
If you have any questions about the tour, if you have any suggestions for locations, or if you want to help us make the tour a success, please do not hesitate to contact us! Or, you can post your suggestions below by clicking "comment on this."
We look forward to seeing you when the 5 Boro Parkstorming Tour comes to your neighborhood!
