Madison Square Park Conservancy is responsible for the maintenance of the park’s lawns, which includes closing the lawns each year from October through May for reseeding. With the heightened need for public space, the Conservancy has kept the lawns open throughout the pandemic. For the month of April, all lawns will be closed to reestablish the grass in time for summer.

2021 City Nature Challenge

Join us for the 2021 City Nature Challenge in Madison Square Park. This international event brings communities together to gather observations of wildlife.

Help us uncover the most species to compete against over 300 cities around the world, as well as green spaces throughout New York City.

From April 30 – May 3, visit the park and take photos of birds, plants, insects, and any wildlife you see and share your findings using the iNaturalist app. Each observation made in our park helps keep Madison Square Park green.
