Enjoy the Summer in New York's Parks
Explore NYC Parks is a useful map of all the amenities offered by and all the upcoming events planned in New York's many parks.
The best thing about this map of New York parks are the extensive search options. You can search for parks within a defined distance of any event, you can search for parks by amenity or by upcoming events.
The amenities and events search tools both provide a long list of options. For example, if you want to search for parks with basketball courts, you can select the basketball option to view all the New York parks where you can play basketball. If you want to narrow that search down you can search for only those parks within a set radius of a location.
Alternatively you can use the events list to find upcoming events. For example, if you want to catch an outdoor movie this summer, you can click on the movies tick-box to find all the New York parks with planned film screenings.
If you select an individual park's marker on the map you can view all the amenities offered and a list of upcoming events.
