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.

Spring Scavenger Hunt

March 1 - May 31, 2021 | 12 AM - 11 PM | Horticulture, Sustainability

Spring Scavenger Hunt


Flowers blooming and birds chirping signal that spring is upon us. After a long hard winter, our favorite species have begun showing themselves in our park. 

From birds to bees, flowers to fungi, join us in exploring the park’s plants and wildlife by participating in our seasonal Scavenger Hunt—all ages welcome! Make observations to help us identify what’s living in and around your park. Record your findings by taking a photo and sharing it on the iNaturalist app—your observations will help keep Madison Square Park green.

With your help, we can keep the park healthy and green for generations to come.

Learn more about iNaturalist here, or download a printable worksheet to get started here.

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