City Parks Foundation is kicking off its 2019 spring sports programs for young people and seniors this April. From April through June, City Parks Foundation will host over 800 youth and 600 seniors in over 20 neighborhood parks and recreation centers for participation in FREE sports programs. Youth programs include golf, track & field, tennis, and senior programs include tennis, yoga, and fitness walking. Registration for all programs is now open online with limited walk-up registration offered at each site.

CityParks Seniors Fitness, presented in partnership with New York Road Runners, is held in 17 neighborhood parks across the city. Seniors Fitness, offered from April 22 - June 14, gives New Yorkers 60+ the chance to participate in free tennis lessons, yoga and fitness walking. All equipment is provided. The program has served over 10,000 participants since it began in 2006 and encourages older New Yorkers to maximize their health benefits by staying active.
