The Yard is also unveiling new programs!
The Yard aims to give children more time outside to explore new concepts in the natural world around them. “Young people in New York face many challenges,” says Executive Director Rebecca Faulkner. “Increased urban density, the impact from climate change, a struggling transit system, and a lack of open spaces for them to play. But with more spaces like The Yard, where children can play freely, we can begin to transform the urban environment for the next generation, and subsequently for all of us.”
The Yard is located at 40 Barry Road, Governors Island. For more information, or to inquire about upcoming programs, you can visit play-ground.nyc, or email [email protected]
