Fresh Air Summer Spaces

In response to COVID-19, The Fresh Air Fund, with the generous support of Bloomberg Philanthropies, Ford Foundation and The JPB Foundation, has created Fresh Air Summer Spaces – fun, free and safe play spaces around the city.

The Fresh Air Summer Spaces program offers two-hour sessions for children ages 5-13 at neighborhood-based locations. Children will participate in supervised fun outdoor activities including arts & crafts, Frisbee, basketball drills and even dance parties!

Fresh Air Summer Spaces are open Monday–Thursday from 10am–4pm
