Shiny Ornaments in Van Cortlandt Park


Learn Origami for the holidays
Join us for an Origami workshop December 14th at 1pm in Van Cortlandt Park.

Van Cortlandt Park, in the northwest Bronx, is a natural showcase featuring the last vestiges of New York City’s native woodlands. It’s 1,146 acres abound with sites that are important to the region and the nation.

Among the most popular attractions in the park is the Van Cortlandt Lake, the largest body of freshwater in the Bronx. Its upper basin can be appreciated from the Van Cortlandt Golf Course, which itself made history as the nation’s first municipal golf course when it opened in 1895. Van Cortlandt Park is also home to the Van Cortlandt House Museum, Van Cortlandt Nature Center, and a number of amenities such as various sports fields, running trails, a multi-use stadium, a pool, an equastrian center, and a seasonal skating rink.

Come out and Learn Japanese paperfolding to make ornaments for a tree – yours or the park’s tree.
