Iceskating @ Bryant Park with our fabulous children
December 1, 2007Free
The Street Project / Police Athletic League program participants are going ice skating at Bryant Park on 42nd Street. The children are really looking forward to this event and we want you there. The group will travel to and from the park via subway.
The Pond is the centerpiece of Bryant Park’s winter season, and all the children and interested volunteers can skate all you want. For beginners -we will all receive a coaching session, so dont let that stop you.
We plan to leave the center at 11:30 and get back at 4:30 pm, so kindly be on time.
