The High Bridge, New York City’s oldest standing bridge, opened June 9th! This summer, the High Bridge will once again connect pedestrians and bicyclists from Manhattan and the Bronx, opening a park that has been closed to the public for more than 40 years.

In collaboration with more than a dozen community groups, NYC Parks is hosting a celebratory festival commemorating the re-opening of the iconic High Bridge! Fun events including historical walking tours, outdoor fitness, public art, a scavenger hunt and more! You can also enjoy an evening SummerStage concert featuring Jose Peña Suazo y La Banda Gorda, starting at 7:00 p.m.

We'll be there with our Partner Organizations offering zumba, cooking demos, a fitness class, samba, health screenings and much more! Check out the Get Healthy Heights High Bridge Festival Schedule of Activities.
