New York City Department of Parks and Recreation Internship Profile
The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation does more than just oversee the upkeep of its 29,000 acres of parkland—as if that weren’t a big enough job. Parks, as those in the department refer to it, also sponsors free events to get communities involved in their local parks, runs a workfare program, organizes nature walks and sports clinics, and maintains a substantial photo archive and a comprehensive website, among other programs. Parks covers so much ground that it takes about 3,500 employees to keep the agency running.
