Lawns Open    Lawns Closed
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.

Letters to the Trees

Tree Canopy

Each year on Arbor Day, we take time to appreciate our trees and all that they have to offer.

Madison Square Park is home to over 300 trees. They provide shade on hot summer days and shelter for some of our favorite wildlife. They clean the air that we breathe and keep carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere—something that is becoming more important as the park faces increasing implications of climate change. 

Join us in celebrating the trees by writing a handwritten letter, composing a poem, or creating a drawing for any tree you love in Madison Square Park. Place your completed letter in one of the dropboxes located throughout the park, or share your letter on Instagram and tag @madsqparknyc.

Thank you to our sponsors: Columbia Property Trust and Eataly.
