Explore NYC nature without going outside thanks to the NYC Parks Department.
As part of their Parks @ Home initiative, NYC Parks is doing LIVE video tours of parks in all five boroughs all week long. Even if you can’t take a stroll yourself, these videos will make you feel like you’re seeing all the gorgeous blooms in person, along with the sun on your face and the breeze on your skin, from Central Park to McCarren Park to Sunset Cove Park. Enjoy!
First, check out this walk through Central Park’s Conservatory Garden:

Explore the third largest park in NYC, Van Cortlandt Park in The Bronx:
While you're doing your part to #FlattenTheCurve by staying home, today, we're bringing the Bronx's Van Cortlandt Park to you. Turn up the volume to hear the sweet sound of the park's chirping birds and the crunch of the walking trail. #ParksAtHome @NYCParks pic.twitter.com/0mpkHwO3Yb

This video of Sunset Cove Park in Broad Channel, Queens is so calming.
For today's #ParksAtHome, we're transporting you to a sunny (and windy!) afternoon at Sunset Cove Park in Broad Channel, Queens. If you ask us, this view of New York City's skyline never gets old. @NYCParks @JBRPC @JamaicaBayGuard pic.twitter.com/5fN7WobOSc
