Friends of Anibal Aviles Playground

On Saturday, October 21st Friends of Anibal Aviles held a fall "Its My Park Day" celebration featuring a bilingual puppet show "Mi Bebe es un Heroe" (My Baby is a Hero) by Repertorio Theater Company, facepainting, flower-bulb planting and refreshments. More than 50 people attended!  Flower bulbs were provided by the New Yorkers for Parks “Daffodil Project” and we planted 250 bulbs.

Special thanks to City Councilman Mark Levine, the City Parks Foundation and the NYS Parks Department for their financial support. Earlier in 2017 our spring It's My Park Day on May 7th featured the puppet show, "Cinderella Samba," as well as facepainting and refreshments and attracted over 100 people.

Friends of Anibal Aviles Playground/Amigos del Parque de Anibal Aviles is a group of parents, schoolchildren, residents, neighbors and businesses dedicated to maintaining and improving the facilities in the park.  

After forming in July 2015, the Friends of Anibal Aviles Playground succeeded in persuading the NYC Parks Department to install a new child safety fence in December 2015, and In February 2016 FOAAP won our first Partnership for Parks grant to hold an “It’s My Park Day” event in April 2016, which nearly 100 people attended. The park has been in TD Bank’s “Rooted in New York” campaign over the summer of 2016, and won inclusion on the Parks Department “Community Parks Initiative” list that enabled the playground equipment and the grounds to be to be painted in October 2016. In December 2016 FOAAP participated in the New Yorkers for Parks “Daffodil Project” and planted 250 bulbs with the help of 20 children and parents from a local preschool. In April 2017 we won our second Partnership for Parks grant to pay for special events in the playground. In 2017 FOAAP hosted two "It's My Park Day" events, one in the spring and another in the fall.
