FW: Family Fun on Pier 62




Thank you for your interest in educational programs at Hudson River Park. As a valued member of our community, we wanted to share the upcoming SUMMER OF FUN programs and events with you. From music to magic to science & nature programs, Hudson River Park's SUMMER OF FUN will keep your family happy all summer long! 


This year, Pier 62 will host HUDSON RIVERKIDS, featuring all of your favorite New York City family performers on Monday evenings starting June 5, FREE!  In July & August, the party moves down to Tribeca's Pier 25.


While you're on Pier 62, take a ride on a bear, a skunk, an eel or any other Hudson Valley animal on the Pier 62 Carousel in Chelsea.


Hudson River Park's newest free nature and science program, SHELL-EBRATE OYSTERS, 

gives kids the opportunity to work alongside Park staff to restore oysters and learn how these bivalves benefit the health of the River. 


With 4 miles of Hudson River Park waterfront, take a look at what you can do this summer! 


Please forward this to families within your network and spread the FUN!
