Whee!!! Free Sleds and Hot Chocolate in Parks Today

The worst of the snow is over (or so the meterologists are saying) and the city is telling New Yorkers to play. The Parks Department is offering free hot chocolate, sleds and nature walks led by urban rangers between noon and 4 at parks in each of the five boroughs.

Here’s the press release:

Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe invites New Yorkers to come out to a neighborhood park for some winter fun. White-capped hills around the city are open for sledding, snowman-making and more. Parks & Recreation will provide sleds and hot chocolate at selected locations across the city, while Urban Park Rangers lead nature walks and teach revelers how to find animal prints in the snow.
