COVID-19 Updates in Riverside Park

In response to the State and City’s directive, all upcoming Summer on the Hudson public programs, and all Conservancy volunteer events, are suspended until further notice.

Public Programming Volunteer Events

We have an incredible lineup of concerts, movies, health & wellness, and educational programming for Summer on the Hudson this year, and look forward to presenting them as soon as we can – including some virtual programs that we hope to announce soon! You can check back to this page and follow Summer on the Hudson on Twitter for updates.

To prevent community spread, all group volunteer projects and events are currently suspended until further notice.

Multi-Sport Summer Camp

As means to prevent community spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Sports Camp season in Riverside Park has been cancelled. Although we are not operating Camp this season, we are working on protocols, safety measures, and curriculum to come back for the 2021 season stronger than ever, and we look forward to having our families join us next year.

Please contact Ahmed Cohen, Sports Camp Manager, if you have any questions.
