Special snow day activities scheduled for Saturday, February 9

Crotona Park


The city is gearing up for a snow day on Saturday, February 9! We just got word that the New York City Parks and Recreation Department will host free activities for families at five parks—one in each borough. From noon to 3pm, parents and kids can head to Crotona Park (Fulton Ave and East 172nd Street) in the Bronx, Prospect Park (near the Tennis House) in Brooklyn, Riverside Park in Manhattan (Riverside Drive at 103rd Street), Juniper Valley Park in Queens (78th Street and Juniper Valley North) and Clove Lakes Park (Martling and Slosson Avenues) in Staten Island for sledding, snowman-making, snow angel contests, music and hot chocolate. Don't have a sled? No worries. The city will have plenty on hand for famlies to borrow. The High Line is getting in on the snow action, too. As long as there is enough snow (which it's looking like there will be), the sports venue will host a Snow Sculpt-Off—winners of the creative competition will receive prizes from Chelsea Piers, REI, People's Pops and more. (For updates, check the High Line's website or follow them on Twitter at @highlinenyc.) Asphalt Green will host their Annual Snowman Showdown at 2pm at their Upper East Side facility. Expect free hot chocolate, festive music, a winter warm-up session and Snowman Showdown top hats for the first 300 people. Happy snow day!
