Madison Square Park Conservancy is responsible for the maintenance of the park’s lawns which are in the process of spring reseeding. While the grass is establishing now, visitors should expect the majority of lawns to be ready for use in late May.  Lawns are open daily for public use starting at 10 AM through 5 PM, weather permitting. Lawns are closed on Parade Days.  Learn more about park hours and rules by visiting our FAQ page.

Letters to the Trees 2023

8

Celebrate Arbor Day by thanking the park’s trees for all that they do. As an accredited, Level II Arboretum Madison Square Park has over 300 trees and a rich diversity of species to enjoy. Show your love for any tree in the park by writing a handwritten letter, composing a poem, or creating a drawing. Place your completed letter in one of the dropboxes located throughout the park, or post your letter on Instagram and tag @madsqparknyc.

Dropboxes featuring our arboretum map are located on each lawn and will remain there for the entire week, April 17 – April 30.

Can’t make it to the park to drop off your letter? You can still write a letter and drop it off in our virtual dropbox.
