Thanks to the blizzard—and the fact that NYC public school students have winter recess—the Parks Department has just announced a Snow Day for tomorrow! At parks in each borough, there will be "FREE, supervised outdoor recreation and winter fun for youth, including sledding, snowman and snow angel contests, friendly snowball fights, music and complimentary hot chocolate." Also, "Urban Park Rangers will provide winter walks and nature activities." Here are the parks where the activities will be held:

Bronx: Crotona Park (Fulton Avenue and East 172nd Street)/11:00 a.m.—3:00 p.m.
Brooklyn: Prospect Park (near the Tennis House)/11:00a.m. —3:00 p.m.
Manhattan: Riverside Park (Riverside Drive at 103rd Street)/11:00 a.m.—3:00 p.m.
Queens: Juniper Valley Park (78th Street & Juniper Valley North)/11:00 a.m. —3:00 p.m.
Staten Island: Clove Lakes Park (Martling and Slosson Avenues)/11:00 a.m. —3:00 p.m.

If you enjoy the snowy revelry, you can share your photos by emailing them to photos@gothamist.com and tagging them "gothamist" on Flickr.
