Youngsters in Coney Island flocked to Kaiser Park to learn about New York’s many waterways and waterfronts for “City of Water Day” on July 14.

Kids had the opportunity to go fishing, plant seeds by the water, fly kites, and learn about the underwater ecosystem that surrounds the city. The children even caught three pike — but threw them back, of course, according to Luis Gonzalez, assistant director of environmental education at the City Parks foundation, who led activities at the park.

“We want to encourage stewardship in young people, to help them become the next generation of stewards,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said about 30 youngsters participated in the foundations activities.

The event was sponsored by the Coney Island Beautification Project in collaboration with the Waterfront alliance.
