Over the years the Stuyvesant Cove Park Association has supported a wide range of events and activities at the park including “Go Fish” days, Halloween pumpkin decorating, dance performances, dance instruction and outdoor concerts. 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 who have come from the surrounding communities as well as the UES, UWS, Chelsea, Harlem, Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island and New Jersey. A varied mix of musical styles guarantees something for every musical taste.
Funding for our most recent concert events was provided by Con Edison, M&T Charitable Foundation and the BG Charitable Foundation and contributions from Friends of Stuyvesant Cove Park. And remember, if your employer offers a Matching Gifts program, please remember The SCPA.
The Stuyvesant Cove Park Association is interested in learning about other funding opportunities so please share any information you have about organizations we might approach.
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. Due to the ongoing construction, volunteer activities are on indefinite hold. To learn more about the program and updates on future volunteer activities, please email Park Manager, Candace Thompson, at Candace@solar1.org.
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.
