Make Corlears Hook Park Your Park this Summer [SPONSORED]
Friends of Corlears Hook Park, our non-profit group that works to maintain and revitalize Corlears Hook Park for the benefit of the general public and residents of the Lower East Side, released the schedule of events in the park, and there is something for everyone to enjoy! From planting and pruning to a free dance performance, yoga classes and movies.
The season kicks off May 20 with our annual spring sprucing-up event, It’s My Park Day, from 10am to 1pm.
Family Fun Day is June 4 from 12:30-3:30 pm and promises to be a festive day of celebration and community gathering. We’ll have lots of hands-on activities for the kids, arts & crafts, giveaways, face painting and much more. The highlight will be a 30-minute performance by the Taylor Teen Ensemble from the Paul Taylor School. Other community groups participating include: The Tenement Museum, The Museum of Chinese in America, Third Street Music School Settlement, University Settlement Society of New York, NYPD 7th Precinct, FDNY, and local Girl Scout Troops.
The month of June also brings the start of Friends of Corlears weekly, free, outdoor yoga classes. You can get your stretch on and show off your warrior pose every Wednesday evening at 6:30 in June and July. A limited number of yoga mats are available for use but if you have your own you are encouraged to bring it.
Lastly, Movies Under the Stars returns to Corlears Hook Park with two showings this summer. Singing in the Rain on July 27 and Cabaret on August 23.
You can find out more about all of these events and how you can get involved on our website www.friendsorcorlears.org.
