It's a Snow Day at New York City parks!
It's ever-so-slightly warmer today, so bundle up and head to one of five city parks that will offer hot cocoa, snowy activities and more
Fri Jan 4 2013
Did you spend yesterday cooped up in your apartment, or—even worse—at work in the winter storm's aftermath? Good news: Not only is it a bit warmer today (okay, the high is supposed to be only 29 degrees, but still), but the New York City Parks department has declared today a snow day.
What does that mean? There'll be free hot chocolate, as well as winter-weather activities like snowman-building, snowball fights (but don't get too agressive, eh?), and sledding. Hit up one of the locations below from 11am–3pm—just make sure to bundle up before heading out. That cold is no joke.
Crotona Park (Fulton Ave and East 172nd St)
Prospect Park (near the Tennis House)
Highbridge Park (near the Field House; sledding is by Amsterdam Ave and 174th St)
Juniper Valley Park (78th St and Juniper Valley North)
Clove Lakes Park (Martling and Slosson Aves)
Snow Day starts at 11 am today! We'll bring the sleds! Bundle up for free hot chocolate, snow activities & more at: http://t.co/tZwc7micXO— NYC Parks & Rec. (@NYCParks) January 4, 2014
