The second session of CityParks Golf presented by René Lacoste Foundation begins on August 1 and runs through August 26 at East River Park and Eugene McCabe Field in Manhattan.

City Parks Foundation free golf lessons for kidsCityParks Golf makes it fun and easy for boys and girls, ages 6-16, to learn to play golf. The free golf lessons and use of equipment, held in public parks and on citywide courses, makes the sport of golf accessible to kids of all skill levels throughout New York City.
