We are excited to announce the Arlington “Ollie” Edinboro Playground in St. Nicholas Park at 140th Street has made the list of projects to be considered for funding through the Participatory Budget process. This is just the beginning, however. Your vote is needed for this project to win. There are 11 projects overall and the ones in each category with the most votes will be forwarded to City Council for funding consideration. There are two ways to vote:
We also invite you to view all the projects on April 2 at the State Office Building at a presentation sponsored by Council Member Bill Perkins.

The PuppetMobile is proud to present The Big Good Wolf coming to local parks in 2018. This modern-day fairy tale, starring classic characters from The Three Bears, finds Baby Bear and his friend Goldilocks making it their mission to help change the Big Bad Wolf into good.
All PuppetMobile performances are free of charge and open to the general public. No reservations are necessary.
This Sunday, September 16th, is our next clean up day. We are a 100% community/volunteer-run space. That means that the condition and cleanliness of the dog run is up to us.
We will plan to start at 8:00 and will work till ~2pm. Please come for as long as you are able to help — every little bit of shared effort makes a big difference! We will have water and snacks for volunteers, but please feel free to bring whatever you need: work gloves, tough shoes, good attitude.
We ask that you leave your dogs at home during this time as the gates and fencing will be open and there will be shovels, rakes, and other tools that may frighten or harm a curious K-9 friend.
Get updates and reminders when you join the Facebook Event.
The Dog Run at Saint Nicholas Park introduces a new logo and newsletter!
INTRODUCING OUR NEW LOOK
We are thrilled to announce a new logo for the dog run!
We wish to provide a more polished presence for you, our patrons, so you will feel more ownership and pride in our amazing (and sometimes dusty) dog run.We also hope this will help give our space an identity that everyone will feel a part of. As our run is 100% community + volunteer-run, it is our hope to be more visible and understood as a separate entity from the NYC Parks Department.
One of our own, Tyler Fields (Brixton’s dad), designed our logo. He is working to have multiple variations to represent the various breeds and colors of all our furry friends. Today, we are launching with Dalmatian and Fawn.
If you would like to submit a coloring that represents your dog we would love to feature it in a future newsletter and even post it at the run! When you’re done you may submit your creation here.
