Fort Tryon Park Trust

Fort Tryon Park Trust Home

The Fort Tryon Park Trust is the non-profit organization dedicated to the care, maintenance, and enrichment of Fort Tryon Park. Since 1998, we have developed strategic partnerships and leveraged funds to build an endowment to protect and improve Fort Tryon Park.

Social Ink is thrilled to have worked alongside the Fort Tryon Park Trust on their new website. The overhaul presents a clean, accessible site that leverages the park’s photogenic assets and serves as a true home for this multifaceted New York City Parks asset.

Key features of this project included a seamless payments and donations and custom built-in tiered membership sign up system, a live, data-integrated map of the park utilizing geolocation data for park sites and gardens, an interactive events calendar and historical timeline. We’ve also laid the groundwork and structure for a forthcoming data-based plant and bloom guide. The WordPress powered site features SEO tools for administrators and is responsive across phones, tablets, and an array of monitors.

Fort Tryon Park is a unique and precious New York City asset. We’re proud to give it a website that represents the park in all its glory.  Social Ink’s partnership with the Fort Tryon Park Trust is an example of our continued work on websites for New York City parks, the civic and community trusts and alliances that help sustain them.

The Forest Park Trust

From our Portfolio

The Forest Park Trust, Inc. is a nonprofit organization founded in 1998 to support, maintain, and program Forest Park and Highland Park in New York City. In early 2015 Social Ink worked with the organization to create site that served as a resource for park visitors, volunteers, and donors.

The CMS powered site is responsive across phones, tablets, and an array of monitors. It includes interactive park maps, an embedded calendar, and a donation feature.

We were happy to partner with the Forest Park Trust on this project and continue Social Ink’s work with civic groups and public-sector organizations!

Freshkills Park Alliance

From our Portfolio

Continuing our work building websites for civic groups and public-sector organizations such as the New York City Parks, we worked closely with the Freshkills Park Alliance to design, develop and implement and foundational website for public outreach, information, and resources.

The website gives Freshkills Park an extended reach as this massive urban landscape redevelopment project proceeds in the former Freshkills Landfill in Staten Island.

Project challenges included on-site, recurring donations, events integration with Eventbrite, visual identity alignment, and considerable information architecture consulting to make sense of the breadth of resources and information that the Alliance offers. The site is fully mobile responsive, adapting to touch devices and lower resolution screens without loading a separate site.

The Freshkills Park Alliance, along with the New York City Parks Department, is powering an amazing, and vital public works project; we can’t wait to see the plan unfold in the coming years.
