Event Chair: Gillian Miniter, Chairman, Playground Partners. Playground Partners is a program of the Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy dedicated to keeping all of Central Park's 21 playgrounds clean, safe and well maintained. Children learn a lesson in community service by volunteering their time, under the supervision of and with the assistance of their parents, in mulching the area around their playground. Mulching enriches and protects soil, helping provide a better growing environment. Thus, their activity assists in preserving the park grounds.
SPECIAL UPCOMING EVENT: On Tuesday, May 17, 2006, 4:30-7:30 PM, Playground Partners and Patrons invites New York Families to celebrate the re-opening of the Hecksher Playground at 7th Avenue & Central Park South.
