Playground Committee Luncheon

The HRPK Friends Playground Committee promotes and supports everything the Park has to offer with a special focus on children, education and families. The Committee’s Annual Luncheon gathers together Committee members and neighborhood friends to celebrate Hudson River Park and the dedicated philanthropists and volunteers who work to ensure the Park’s continued care, growth and success.

After careful and thoughtful consideration, HRPK Friends and our Luncheon Planning Committee made the decision to postpone the Playground Committee Luncheon. We are very excited to be able to host the Luncheon on a later date. Please do not hesitate to reach out to luncheon@hudsonriverpark.org with any questions or concerns.
