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.
This Father’s Day, skip the crowded restaurants and treat your dad to a day on the river for kayaking on the Hudson  with the Downtown Boathouse from 9:00 AM–05:30 PM. All you need to bring is your bathing suits or shorts and your sense of adventure!
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 .
If you and your dad share a love of animals, why not spend a fun day together at the Staten Island Zoo  for Father’s Day? Gather up the whole family, hop on the ferry and spend the day visiting the zoo’s red pandas, owls, meerkats and more!

There’s a reason that fishing is one of the most beloved things you can do with your father – it’s fun! Urban Park Rangers will be organizing a free saltwater fishing trip this Sunday  in Brooklyn, so grab your dad and head on over.
