Coming up on Sunday, there will be all sorts of fun and games at Luther Gulick Park. First off, it’s the 2nd annual Ping Pong Challenge inside the soon-to-be refurbished space alongside the Williamsburg Bridge.
There will also be lots of other activities built around “It’s My Park Day,” including face painting, pumpkin painting, bulb planting and art activities sponsored by the New Museum.
The ping-pong tournament is free, open to local players of all levels and will be played on the park’s unique stone-and-metal ping pong table. Donated prizes for the event include a $100 gift certificate from Frank’s Bikes, premium passes to the American Museum of Natural History and other prizes from area businesses. For more information and to sign up to play in advance, visit gulickpark.org.
The event takes place Sunday from noon-3 p.m. in Luther Gulick Park, on Delancey and Willett streets. This year there’s plenty to celebrate, since the Friends of Gulick Park have now raised about $3 million for the renovation of the long-neglected space.
