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.

What is iNaturalist?

Inaturalist

iNaturalist is a free nature app used to identify the plants and animals around you. Scientists from around the world use the iNaturalist database to better understand the natural environment to protect ecosystems. By recording and sharing observations, this community-driven platform lets you learn more about the nature that surrounds you.

At the park, our team uses the data collected to make important decisions about the habitats and food sources that sustain Madison Square Park’s ecosystem. While you’re in the park, take time to look high in the treetops for our resident birds, or under fallen leaves for snails and slugs, and notice how the habitats and food sources that sustain the species that call our park home are all connected.

Find out more about each species living in the park by visiting our iNaturalist profile page and learn how using iNaturalist helps protect Madison Square Park. With your help, we can keep the park healthy and green for generations to come.

iNaturalist is a joint initiative by the California Academy of Sciences and the National Geographic Society. Download the app here.
