OLNY Games in the Park: Central Park

Date(s) - July 16, 2021
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


For those that would like a break from Zoom, let us meet each other and reconnect in real space. On Friday, July 16 at 5 pm, Open Love NY will be staking out an area of Central Park in which to meet and play lawn games. We will be providing some games (list below) as well as rules explanations. Feel free to bring your favorites as well. No food or drink will be provided by Open Love NY. Bring what you need with you or you can buy things from local vendors.

In terms of safety, we will be following CDC guidelines, which is that all fully vaccinated people may attend without a mask or social distancing. Otherwise unvaccinated individuals are asked to please wear a mask and maintain social distance. Several games have been chosen to make this easier. Please remember that New York City still requires masks for buses and trains even if you are vaccinated.
That said, during times like these consent about things as simple as hugs are more important than ever. Ask consent for physical touch even if you see others seemingly not doing so, and even if it’s a friend outside of your pod you haven’t seen in SO LONG.

The intended location is Cedar Hill in Central Park (roughly here: https://goo.gl/maps/zFW4NCVv7MKCzyoQA). The location will get more specific day-of as we set up at a specific location. Follow our Twitter handle @openloveny for any live updates about location or rain information.
Free admission – $5 to $10 donation accepted through Venmo @Open-LoveNY
