Want to learn more about nature with your kids? Look no further than NYC Parks & Recreation! By selectively filtering their Events calendar (using such options as Education or Kids -- you can even filter by Only Free Events), you can find an array of free and low-cost events taking place in and near NYC parks.
On your way to visit nature, do you want to find a nearby playground? It’s your lucky day! KaBOOM!, the playground advocacy group, has an excellent map mash-up offering crowd-sourced (read: added by users in the community -- like you!) playground sites. It even has a smartphone app (for iOS or Android) that lets you find playgrounds in your immediate area.
So what are you waiting for? Find an event or playground, grab your coat and get outside!
