NYC Parks’ Framework for an Equitable Future is our commitment to creating thriving public spaces for all New Yorkers. This framework will strategically allocate resources; make our city cleaner, greener, and more resilient; incorporate substantial community and stakeholder engagement; and develop innovative and data-driven approaches to designing, planning, developing, and delivering services in our parks. We will protect the investment in parks that we have already made, and improve the quality, accessibility, efficiency, and sustainability of the overall park system and of the parks that serve New York City’s diverse neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs.

NYC Parks is the steward of approximately 29,000 acres of land — 14 percent
of New York City — including more than 5,000 individual properties ranging
from Coney Island Beach and Central Park to community gardens and
Greenstreets. We operate more than 800 athletic fields and nearly 1,000
playgrounds, 550 tennis courts, 66 public pools, 48 recreational facilities,
17 nature centers, 13 golf courses, and 14 miles of beaches. We care for
1,200 monuments and 23 historic house museums. We look after 650,000 street
trees, and two million more in parks. We are New York City's principal
providers of recreational and athletic facilities and programs. We are home
to free concerts, world-class sports events, and cultural festivals.
