Astoria Park Alliance thanks our 2014 community partners

It has been an incredible season in Astoria Park, and we want to say thank you! Please excuse if you were left off by accident - SO many fine folks to thank.  

To all of our friends in Astoria and beyond, you make our work possible. After all, building community starts in a park! pages/ Astoria-Park-Alliance /2014-11-12/ PDF/Page_015.pdf /2013/11/ Giving-thanks-proof-that-saying-thank-you-matters

Astoria Park Alliance 

Volunteer Days!

APA Volunteer Days are an expansion of our already great partnership with NY Cares and in response to the large amount of requests we get from the public to volunteer in Astoria Park. Volunteer opportunities average twice a month, March through November. 
Thank you for wanting to make a difference!



The Astoria Park Alliance works closely with Park Managers to identify need, plan work projects, and facilitate volunteers on the ground. Please email us here at APAgreetings or message us on Facebook if you are interested in volunteering. Please note: minor children (12+ ) must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

Here are the dates for NOV:
