Description



Join forces with OSA and the neighborhood’s Super Friends Groups to fight for nature, beauty, health, fun, environmental justice and economic development at:

The 6th Annual Party for the Parks
A Benefit for OSA and a Celebration of
North Brooklyn’s Super Friends Groups!


Wednesday, May 31, 2017
7-10 pm

Host: Amazon Fashion Studios
35 Kent Avenue
Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Honoring: Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park


About North Brooklyn's Super Friends: The neighborhood's growing network of friends groups* at American Playground, BQGreen, Bushwick Inlet, McCarren, McGolrick and Transmitter have been fighting "villains" in our neighborhood - asphalt, garbage, pollution and crime! To honor the selfless and fearless work of our neighbors, OSA commissioned Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez of Somos Arte in Williamsburg to create superhero characters to represent each of the six friends groups. Stay tuned in the weeks ahead to learn more about each Super Friend and the friends group and park for which they're fighting! (* What’s a friends group? Neighbors who come together to improve their park. They're involved in maintenance, programming, fundraising and serving as the community's voice in their park’s management.)


About Party for the Parks: A benefit for OSA and the over 45 parks and playgrounds in Williamsburg and Greenpoint it supports in partnership with the NYC Parks Department. The event is part fundraiser; part community celebration for the hundreds of North Brooklynites who invest time and resources in their parks! Because when a community supports its parks, the beauty, health, economy and quality of life of a neighborhood improve!


About OSA: Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA ) is a non-profit organization that partners with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation to maintain and enhance 45 parks and playgrounds in Williamsburg and Greenpoint and improve the lives of over 200,000 North Brooklynites. OSA is:

  • Extraordinary: Its mission is to serve all North Brooklynites, especially those in under-served communities

  • Essential: North Brooklynites suffer from one of the lowest ratios of open space in the City. And the upkeep and programming of existing parks is challenging due to the constraints and pressures on the NYC budget

  • Unique: The only park conservancy for an entire neighborhood
