The beauty of New York City lies in its incredible skyline and great parks. Everyone is familiar with the most famous one, Central Park, but the smaller parks are just as fantastic for enjoying lunch, a stroll or catching up with friends. The good thing is almost every neighborhood has a park to get a dose of nature. In fact, 14% of the land is managed by the Parks Department.
Many Treatmo Hotspots are conveniently near city parks. Winter or summer, grab your food on Treatmo and take advantage of the open spaces to clear your mind.
