Free Summer Activities for Kids
Looking for places you can drop your kids off for a few hours during the summer—where there’s supervision? Here’s a list of free facilities and programs around New York City where kids can learn new things and have fun in a safe environment:
Have some fun in the sun! Bring the kids to one of our 55 free outdoor pools, with lifeguards and Parks staff on duty.
We’re offering free meals to children under 19 years of age at most of our parks, playgrounds, and pools. An ID is not required.
Want to get the kids outside? This program offers free, intensive sports lessons for kids of all ages at select parks across New York City.
During the summer we offer free Learn to Swim classes in all five boroughs. Experienced swimmers can join a swim team at a rec center.
