The annual free outdoor concert series, which runs from mid-June through the month of July, has grown in popularity over the years, attracting audience members of all ages. A wide range of musical styles guarantees something for every musical taste.
Our evening of folk dancing is a welcoming event that has seen participation grow to include men and woman as well as young boys and girls. The dances are easy to follow and suitable for any fitness level.
Family Day activities are designed to entertain and educate children.
Funding for the 2016 Series is provided by a grant from the NY City Council received through the office of Councilman Dan Garodnick with additional contributions from the Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club, the Vincent Albano Republican Club and Friends of Stuyvesant Cove Park.
OUR PARK ANGELS
Regularly scheduled Volunteer Days have been an effective way of keeping the community involved while maintaining the park to the highest standard. Tasks on any given Volunteer Day are determined by the park itself and coordinated by the Park Manager with mulching, weeding and pruning amongst the most common activities. New volunteers are always welcome.
The hours of service that the dedicated team of Park Angels provide have a dual benefit. Using a formula implemented by the EDC, the volunteer hours are translated into money that is then paid to Solar 1 to fund further maintenance efforts.
BIRD LIFE AND BIRD WALKS
The SCPA coordinates guided bird walks through Stuyvesant Cove Park that are led by an experienced local birder. A variety of ducks, gulls and songbirds are often seen during these morning walks that begin at The Cove and progress into the neighboring Stuyvesant Town housing complex, another refuge for sparrows, woodpeckers, cardinals and many more species.
