UPDATE: The meeting is being rescheduled: “Due to some unforeseen circumstances, this meeting is POSTPONED until further notice.”

The North Brooklyn Parks Alliance will host a meeting with local advocates and those interested in helping to support local green space on Thursday May 2, at the Park Church Co-op (129 Russell St.) from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.

NBPA formed in 2003 with the purpose to increase and improve open space in Brooklyn Community District 1:

On Thursday May 2nd, NBPA will be hosting a meeting of North Brooklyn parks advocates to start a discussion about how we all can better work together to empower volunteers, encourage advocacy, make parks improvements and promote equity across our many parks.

Our focus will be on the structure of the relationship among the many advocates working in our parks – volunteers, activists, Friends groups, NBPA, Partnership for Parks, and, of course, the Department of Parks.

North Brooklyn has over 80(!) parks, ranging in size from just a couple hundred square feet, all the way up to 36 acres. We each bring different resources to the maintenance and stewardship of over 140 acres of parkland. Coordinating and maximizing these resources is going to be very important if we are to create the best alliance for North Brooklyn parks.

This ONLY works when YOU get involved! We hope to see you there!
