Bio

Parks & Recreation is the steward of nearly 29,000 acres of land — 14 percent of New York City—including more than 5,000 individual properties ranging from Yankee Stadium and Central Park to community gardens and Greenstreets. We house five major stadia and operate more than 800 athletic fields and nearly 1,000 playgrounds, 550 tennis courts, 66 public pools, 48 recreational facilities, 17 nature centers, 13 golf courses, and 14 miles of beaches. We care for 1,200 monuments and 22 historic house museums. We look after 600,000 street trees, and two million more in parks. We are New York City's principal providers of recreational and athletic facilities and programs.  We are home to free concerts, world-class sports events, and cultural festivals.
