Bryant Park Contributes over $15,000 to Community Parks Initiative

Last fall, the NYC Parks Department announced its Community Parks Initiative (CPI), a plan to rebuild 35 under-resourced community parks within New York City through a combination of partnerships, capital investment, and programming and maintenance. Bryant Park worked closely with the Parks department to explore funding opportunities for this equity initiative.

The Bryant Park Shop makes it easy to support CPI--every dollar from the sale of NYC Parks merchandise on our website is given to CPI. Even better, we are the only online shop that sells those specific NYC Parks items (otherwise, you'd have to purchase in-person at The Arsenal in Central Park, home to the NYC Parks Department).

In December, one dollar from every ride on Le Carrousel was donated to CPI.

The result? We've been able to give over $15,000 to CPI in just a few short months. So shop away, and support a worthy cause!

This map shows the locations of community parks and neighborhoods in all five boroughs that will be served by the new initiative.
