  • 5 people are interested

Join NYC Parks Stewardship and the Department of City Planning (DCP) for a special tour and clean-up of our ongoing work at Coney Island Creek Park. Every year, DCP celebrates NYC's 520 miles of waterfront on and around May 20 (5/20) with a series of fun, free events for the public called "NYC 520." Since 2017, DCP has coordinated these events across New York City with agency, non-profit, and community partners. This year's events highlight efforts that seek to enhance the sustainability, resiliency, and ecological health of New York City's waterfront and waterways. NYC Parks Stewardship will host a small tour of Coney Island Creek Park to highlight our ongoing restoration of dunes and highlight some of our ongoing partnerships and projects along Coney Island Creek. Participants will also have the option of joining up in a coastal clean-up after the event. Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long sleeves, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty.
