I Love My Park Day

Volunteers tackle invasives on the Old Croton Aqueduct

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2021, 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. We focus our efforts along the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail which runs through our property. It has been a huge success thanks to the hard work to organize the event each year by our neighbor, Diane Alden. We've been happy to take part in this endeavor since moving to the neighbhood in 2015.
