Family Fun Day
NYC Ferry Proudly Sponsors Friends of Corlears Hook’s Family Fun Day! Take the Lower East Side (LES) route to Corlears Hook Park. Family Fun Day is an event that Friends of Corlears Hook Park has put on annually since our founding and has quickly become a neighborhood tradition. This event doesn’t require any “work” to be done but rather invites the community into the park to enjoy various activities and learn about local community programming. People are invited to bring a picnic to the park and enjoy an array of fun entertainment, activities, giveaways, and information provided by various partner organizations.
