I Love My Park Day

Regretfully, I Love My Park Day will not take place on May 2 this year due to the COVID-19 public health crisis and the responsibility we have to maintain social distance to reduce the spread of the virus.

Although we will not be holding the event, e look forward to the day it is again safe to show our love for parks by volunteering together and hope that you will join us, once again, in 2021. I Love My Park Day has grown year-upon-year due to the passion, dedication and hard work of our participants. If you have any questions, please contact Will Coté at wcote@ptny.org.

What is I Love My Park Day?

I Love My Park Day, held the first Saturday in May, attracts thousands of volunteers from across the state to participate in cleanup, improvement, and beautification events at New York State parks and historic sites. Join us to celebrate New York's park system by cleaning up park lands and beaches, planting trees and gardens, restoring trail and wildlife habitat, removing invasive species, and working on various site improvement projects.
