​​​Tai Chi 2022

We are back again this year, with Tai Chi in the Park for May - October. Join our leader, Denise Gillies, for an hour of Tai Chi in Mitchell Park, for the seventh year of our signature summer event.


We need the weather to cooperate with us, rain will cancel the event. We will try to keep this page updated with last-minute cancellations if that happens. There are other circumstances that cause cancellations, when we know in advance of such cancellations they will be posted earlier.


POSSIBLE CANCELLATION: It might rain on Saturday, July 2. If it is raining at 9, we will cancel. Otherwise Denise will be there.

​​​​Free Skate Sunday

Once again, we teamed up with Greenport Village to bring you Free Skate Sunday, for skaters aged 17 and under. It included entry and, if needed, skate rental. We tried to sponsor two days, Sunday January 16, 2022 and Sunday February 20, 2022, 11AM - 5PM. 


We were lucky with the weather on January 16 and 241 skaters 17 and younger enjoyed a free day of skating! You can read about it and see a video in this article by Lisa Finn on the North Fork Patch here. Unfortunately, the weather was too warm and there was no skating on February 20. We'll try again next year!


Mitchell Park functions all year as a gathering place, a venue for maritime and other Village events, and a place of  entertainment, relaxation  & education for visitors of every age.   It is truly the heart of the Village.

With this awareness as motivation, The Friends of Mitchell Park have a mission to promote the well-being of the Park, either through the organization’s own educational, artistic, environmental and historic efforts, or by its support through grants, gifts, bequests or other means to those who initiate projects that have similar goals.

Features of the park include:
- Summer stage and dance floor

- Working Carousel
- Seasonal ice-skating rink

- Working Marina                      
- Sandy beach

- Seasonal mist and sprinkler garden
- Observation deck and boardwalk

- Camera Obscura

The Friends of Mitchell Park, a registered 501(c)(3)charitable organization, was founded in 2008 to support cultural, artistic and educational events in Mitchell Park, a 4-acre green oasis on the waterfront in Greenport Village on the East End of Long Island, NY. We operate with the  cooperation and support of the Village of Greenport
