New Yorkers For Parks Launches New Website

New York City’s only independent parks advocacy organization, New Yorkers for Parks (NY4P), unveils its new website, www.ny4p.org, documenting current and past conditions of New York City’s 28,600 acres of parkland and natural areas.

"As the watchdog for the people of New York and their parks, this site provides everyone who logs on with a powerful, fun and interesting tool to research conditions in their parks, playgrounds, natural areas, and recreation centers," said Rowena Daly, NY4P Communications Director.

The site was researched and compiled by NY4P communications staff, Rowena Daly and Vinette Brown and Research Director, Maura Lout. Beauconfire Consulting based in Falls Church, Virginia crafted the site’s design led by Project Manager, Cara McWalters in its New York City office.

The new website, www.ny4p.org, offers information previously unavailable. Now you can log on to view a map of your neighborhood and a listing of parks, read park-related testimony delivered at City Hall, track down press releases on past or present news stories, check out the calendar of events and enjoy photos of natural areas, park parties and rallies.

NY4P is a coalition of civic, greening, recreation and economic development groups that serves as a citywide, independent, advocate for the people of New York and their parks. Formerly known as the Parks Council, NY4P is the city’s oldest parks advocacy organization. Its rich history dates back to 1889. While the organization’s names, individuals, activities and missions have evolved over the years, its innovative and independent approach to advocacy work has remained steadfast.
