A few weeks ago, I alluded to teaming up with NYRR on a program targeting the local community! I’m excited to share the details today!
Recently, NYRR partnered with NYC Parks and the NYC Parks’ Community Initiative.
The Community Parks Initiative is a multi-faceted investment in the smaller public parks that are located in New York City. The initiative will engage New Yorkers in rebuilding local parks, create new reasons to get out and get fit, and reconnect communities to the green spaces right outside their doorsteps.(Source)
NYRR is helping create new reasons to get out and get fit by spearheading FREE, open runs in parks across the city.
Reps from NYRR reached out to me because Conference House Park was on their short list. It’s a park close to my home where I do a lot of my easy running and take a lot of photos of! I met up with a few of the ladies a couple of weeks ago to scope it out – to ensure it had running routes closed to traffic with access to public bathrooms, water and good parking.
