Summer Fitness, Art and Film All in One Place!

Summer seems to go so fast! It is already almost August! Before summer slips away completely, there are some excellent opportunities to enjoy some free fitness, art and film in the great outdoors at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City. There are weekly free Yoga, Pilates, and Tai Chi classes offered on the park grounds during the week and on weekends.

If you’d rather enjoy a great film, this summer celebrates the 10th Annual Outdoor International Film Festival and there are different films screened every Wednesday through August 27th (weather permitting). Each week focuses on a different country or culture and will feature cuisine from local restaurants for sampling in addition to music performances. Sit on the lawn with a view of the Manhattan Skyline and get transported to another place with all your senses!

And since this is an art center, there are numerous exhibits and classes going on to indulge your inner artist. Check out http://www.socratessculpturepark.org/ for a full schedule of events and all the details!

If that isn’t enough to float your boat 😉 then the Long Island City Boat House and Partnerships with Parks host free boating from Hallets Cove (the Sculpture Park’s beach). You can choose to Canoe or kayak on Sundays through October 12th (weather permitting) and all for free! For more details go to http://www.licboathouse.org/ .
