On Saturday, February 9, the city held a Snow Day at Juniper Park that included sledding and other activities.

When there is heavy snowfall the New York City Parks Department sometimes throws a special “Snow Day” in parks across the city with organized activities, such as supervised safe sledding, snowman building contests, best snow angel contests, friendly snowball fights, music and complimentary hot chocolate.

After the blizzard that hit on Friday, February 8, known as Nemo, there was a “Snow Day” at a park in each borough, including Juniper Park in Queens, on Saturday afternoon.
