Event Navigation

Join the Urban Park Rangers on a hike in Fort Tryon Park and learn about why Manhattan rocks! New York City is the site of ancient earth-shaking and earth-shaping events. The bedrock that anchors the city’s skyscrapers tells a story of a place going back more than a billion years. The island of Manhattan is built on three strata known as Manhattan Schist, Inwood Marble, and Fordham Gneiss.

Please note: The Rangers are offering outdoor programs with limited attendance so that you can have a safe and enjoyable time in parks. The Rangers have put protocols into place to keep our participants and staff safe and healthy. We’re asking everyone to help us stay safe:

  • Stay home if you’re sick
  • Maintain six feet of physical distance between households
  • Wear a face covering
  • Wash your hands

No registration is necessary. Please wear your mask and bring hand sanitizer. The Rangers will have extra masks on hand to give out, if necessary. Meet at Anne Loftus Playground’s Broadway/Riverside Drive entrance.
