Stewardship Day – Spring Kick-off Event!

Please help the Fort Tryon Park Trust keep Fort Tryon Park healthy and beautiful! Meet NYC Parks’ horticulture staff at Margaret Corbin Circle’s Heather Garden entrance to sign in. Wear long pants, sturdy shoes, and your face mask. Activities will include some or all of the following: painting, planting preparations, planting, weeding, and more. Tools and gloves will be provided but bring a filled water bottle.

Groups of 5+ RSVP by emailing info@FortTryonParkTrust.org a week in advance so we can provide sufficient equipment and tools on hand.

Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Free Tour of Fort Tryon Park

I’ve been a sightseeing guide for over 25 years but I’ve had no work in the past year. This Free Tour is to help me get my ‘chops’ back. Reserve your tour with Tourguidestan@yahoo.com

REQUIREMENTS
Maximum 9 tourists.
I wear a speaker and microphone, so social distancing is easy.
Everyone wears a mask all the way through.
Be sure you can walk up-and-down ramps and paths of as much as 10 stories in 20 minutes.
Wear comfortable shoes.

The Tour will begin outside the 190th St A train station on Bennett Avenue. It ends at Margaret Corbin Circle at the entrance of the park up above.
