NEW YORK — New York City has reopened its parks.

They had been closed at 6 p.m. Monday because of the potential of falling tree branches from heavy snow.

The Parks Department says they were officially reopened at 11 a.m. Tuesday following a "careful examination."

The department is still urging caution. In addition to the possible hazard from branches, paths can be slippery and a frozen lake could be obscured by a blanket of snow.

If you see any hazardous conditions, call 311.
