Placita Infantil Playground opened in 1991 and is operated by Nuestros Ninos Daycare. It is used daily by hundreds of daycare students. Front and rear play areas are separated by a large patio shaded by a pergola. Ornamental plants and evergreens provide color year-round. Children play outside every day the temperature is above freezing.

In 2011, GrowNYC partnered with KaBOOM! to rejuvenate the playspace. More than 200 volunteers from the community and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group installed a brand new playground and built benches, murals, a childrens garden, picnic tables, chess board table tops and more.

This week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York State's investment of $15 million in the construction of a new Greenmarket Regional Food Hub in the Bronx. The hub, which will be used by GrowNYC's Greenmarket Co. program, will be a state-of-the-art 120,000 square foot facility that will greatly increase New Yorkers' access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer.

  • Greenmarket

    Our network of farmers markets, Youthmarkets, Fresh Food Box pick-ups, and Greenmarket Co. ensures that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, healthiest local food.

  • Recycle

    We blanket the five boroughs with resources like textile and food scrap collection, Stop 'N' Swaps, and free training to make waste reduction easy for all.

  • Garden

    We build and rejuvenate community & school gardens in all 5 boroughs, and support even more gardens through volunteer days, technical assistance, school garden grants, & more.

  • Teach

    We foster future environmental stewards by providing 60,000 children each year with programs that provide meaningful interactions with the natural environment.
