Friends of Van Cortlandt 
Park's February 2016 

We had our first snowstorm of the season and Van Cortlandt Park was beautiful in all of the snow.  Hope everyone stayed warm and safe during the storm.  We have been taking advantage of these cold days to plan for our spring events.  Visit our events page to see what we have planned.

In the meantime, we will be tabling at the 22ndAnnual Bronx Parks Speak Up: Using Parks and Green Spaces to Positively Impact Community Health on February 20th from 11am to 5pm at Lehman College.  Hope you will join us there.   

And if you haven't yet please make suggestions on how to improve access to Van Cortlandt Park through Parks Without Borders.  Parks Without Borders is an NYC Parks initiative to make parks more open, welcoming, and beautiful by focusing on improving entrances, edges, and park-adjacent spaces. As part of OneNYC , Mayor Bill de Blasio has dedicated $50 million to the program.  Visit theParks Without Borders Information page  to find out more about how this program works and suggest projects that should be considered.

Hope to see you in the park soon!
Christina and all of your Friends at the Friends of VCP
