Avoid Parks until day after snow blizzard update [NYC Parks]

Jan 25 /26 /27 /28


NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm

 predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday

 evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous

 conditions in parks, including falling branches and 

treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises 

New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday 

morning, when we will provide an update on 

park conditions.

Winter Storm Alert

Due to the winter storm, NYC Parks will close this afternoon at 6:00 p.m., effective until further notice. Closures include all parks and recreation centers. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. For specific NYC Parks-related service changes throughout the storm, please visit our Storm Details page.
For all other information about City services, please visit NYC Severe Weather, and sign up for Notify NYC or follow @NYCOEM on Twitter.

Attention Astoria Park Users: The park is so beautiful in the snow, but blizzard conditions will greatly increase the risk of falling tree limbs! 
Please keep yourself, your children, and your pets safe. Stay tuned to a reputable weather source, and wait until the storm is over. Also, post-storm, the Park Rangers will identify dangerous areas with yellow tape. Please avoid dangerous and icy areas. Your safety is most important to us!

Go Bag

Every household should pack a Go Bag — a collection of items you may need in the event of an evacuation. A Go Bag should be packed in a sturdy, easy-to-carry container such as a backpack or suitcase on wheels. A Go Bag should be easily accessible if you have to leave your home in a hurry. Make sure it is ready to go at all times of the year.
