I had a good time at the 21st Annual Bronx Parks Speaks Up event held at Lehman College. There were so many great organizations at the event promoting the work their trying to get done at the many parks in the Bronx. It was also a great networking event where park organizations can share ideas and possibly help each other out in future projects. New York City Parks department had a bunch of representatives at the event networking with people and there was also a presentation showing the attendees what NYC Parks have planed for the future and in the works for the Bronx.
About Bronx Parks Speak up:
The Bronx Parks Speak Up is an annual community networking conference for park and environmental stakeholders. Organized by the Bronx Coalition for Parks and Green Spaces (BCPGS), this day-long event draws over 250 Bronx residents, elected officials and agency personnel. It gives its attendees the chance to learn about government and non-government resources and participate in face-to-face discussions with city and local elected and appointed officials.
The Bronx Coalition of Parks and Green Spaces is a grassroots collaboration of Bronx parks and open space groups that advocates on a borough-wide level, convenes an annual Bronx Parks Speak Up and promotes member events and initiatives.
