With the help of National Grid, the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) launched Greenway Adventures - a free self-guided summer tour exploring the greenways in all five of New York City's boroughs.
From June 1 to August 31, participants can use a free digital guide to help them explore more than 24 different, curated routes and adventures.
'We're thrilled to bring New Yorkers together to embark on new adventures and rediscover our city this summer,' said Terri Carta, BGI's Executive Director. 'Our city's greenways are unique spaces for people to connect to nature and each other, as well as move around their city safely. Greenway Adventures NYC showcases this essential green infrastructure and the wonders of New York City they provide access to.'
This event is offered for free in part thanks to the generous presenting sponsorship from National Grid. NYC Ferry, Trek Bicycle, REI, Greenpoint Landing, Kiwi Energy, and Wegmans were also sponsors.
'National Grid is excited to sponsor Greenway Adventures NYC,' said Eileen Cifone, Director for Customer and Community. 'It's a great way to spend time outside as the city is reopening. Bringing communities together to explore our beautiful environment and open green spaces is an opportunity to truly appreciate nature while also raising awareness on sustaining these precious resources for future generations to enjoy.'
BGI also hopes Greenway Adventures will also support the NYC Greenway Coalition - founded to raise awareness and investment for a 400-mile greenway network across the city.
Registered participants gain immediate access to the event's online guide platform featuring the first 14 greenway adventures, event info, and the ongoing summer activity calendar. Greenway routes are designed for people of all ages and abilities and spread across all 5 boroughs. Additional routes and activities will be released and added throughout the summer.
