Gallery: 6 Ways to Spend Father’s Day with Your Dad in NYC

If your dad is a man who's always looking to try something new, we're pretty sure he's never been on one of Wildman Steve Brill's fascinating foraging tours. They're sort of like scavenger hunts except you'll be searching the city's parks for wild edibles like dandelions, garlic mustard and jewelweed, and them tossing them up as a tasty salad to devour afterwards. This Sunday's tour will be a stone's throw from NYC in Pawling, NY, but if you'd rather stay close to home, Saturday's tour will be right in Prospect Park.

Whether your father is a bonafide foodie or just a guy who enjoys getting his eat on, he’ll find tons to tickle his palate at this Sunday’s Food Truck Rally in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The city’s finest food carts from Kimchi Taco Truck to Luke’s Lobster to Mexicue will be taking over Grand Army Plaza from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., so tell your dad to wear his loose-fitting pants and treat him to a meal – or three – to support local NYC vendors.

Introduce your padre to the joys of gardening and help beautify Ridgewood, Queens at the same time at this Saturday’s MillionTreesNYC Tree Care Workshop. Together, you’ll learn all about the benefits trees bring to our city as well as how to water, weed, mulch, protect, and care for them and other plants.
