Hippo Playground Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony + Summer Events

The Hippo Playground, located at 91st Street in Riverside Park, was recently made safer with some updates and improvements – made possible by the Hippo Spring Fair, the Riverside Park Conservancy, and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation.

To celebrate these updates, a ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Tuesday, July 9th at 4pm. Snacks and refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend!


These safety improvements come just in time for a whole lot of FREE family-fun at the Hippo Playground. And the free fun starts this week!

Art in the Park will begin on Monday, July 8th, and will run until August 30th. It will take place weekdays from 10am-12pm.


And the Hippo Playground Summer Concert Series begins on Wednesday, July 24th. Free concerts for kids will take place every Wednesday at 4pm until August 28th!
