About the Projects
Community Parks Initiative – The Community Parks Initiative is an investment in neighborhood parks with the greatest needs. We are redesigning and reconstructing dozens of smaller, local parks through capital projects.
Parks Without Borders – Through Parks Without Borders, we’re reimagining the role of parks in communities by redesigning where they meet the streets and sidewalks. As part of OneNYC , Mayor Bill de Blasio has dedicated $50M to the program to make parks more accessible, improve neighborhoods, and create vibrant public spaces.
Anchor Parks – Through the Anchor Parks program, New York City will invest $150M in transformative capital improvements at five regional Anchor Parks, one in each borough.
