Always there for the Park, so the Park is always there for you.


Every New Yorker has a unique relationship with the Park.

Welcome to #myCentralPark, a celebration of our essential shared greenspace in the heart of New York City. Central Park has proven to be an invaluable resource during this challenging time, offering enough space and fresh air so that the resilient people of this city have a place to play, relax, and breathe a little easier. The Central Park Conservancy was formed by a group of New Yorkers dedicated to saving the Park from neglect. Since then, we’ve always been there to care for the Park…to replenish a flower bed, revive a lawn, or restore a fountain. And in turn, the Park has replenished, revived, and restored you.
