In parks across the city this coming weekend, people will be planting flowers, tidying up garden areas and partaking in all sorts of fun and games. “It’s My Park Day” is a chance for neighbors to reconnect, to celebrate spring and to beautify both treasured and neglected public spaces.
Festivities at Luther Gulick Park, at Willett and Delancey streets, will be especially robust. After a successful fundraising campaign and community visioning process, the Friends of Gulick Park is on the verge of seeing the area refurbished and revitalized.
On Sunday, there will be all kinds of activities, including bike decorating, a ping pong tournament and gardening. There will also be a bike repair and tuneup station. The event takes place from 1-4 p.m. Click here for a look at other “It’s My Park Day” locations on the Lower East Side this weekend.
