The High Line is bursting with fun for the whole family this month.

The elevated park, which runs along Manhattan’s 10th Avenue, gets things started on July 6 with its Wild Wednesdays workshops. Now through August, gardeners and educators lead hands-on, nature-based family fun on the High Line, where you can touch a wriggly worm, paint a butterfly wing, catch the wind, or grab a magnifying glass and go on a bug hunt.

On July 9, Saturday Play kicks into gear. Every Saturday through August, families are invited to get creative with hands-on art activities on the High Line. Create art projects inspired by the beautiful park views and the site-specific public art on view.

Then on July 19, join the New York Public Library and Friends of the High Line for lively, interactive, and funny tales shared by librarians from your local branch.

Rounding out July’s activities is the High Line’s Wild Wednesday Creature Feature on July 27, where you can watch butterflies take their first flight and explore how these insects help plants grow.

It’s enough to keep you busy as a bee!
