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.

Arboretum

Tree Arboretum 3
Step Into Our Tree Museum

Our trees give our park life. When you step beneath our canopy from the busy city streets you’ll instantly feel a refreshing change of atmosphere. With over 300 trees and a rich diversity in species, Madison Square Park is proud to be officially recognized as an accredited Level 2 arboretum by the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program.

To help keep our trees healthy and preserve our arboretum for future generations to enjoy, we have commissioned a 60-year Tree Conservation Plan to protect and strengthen our canopy. The major goals of the plan are to diversify tree species, maintain a mixed forest of mature and immature trees, choose species that provide a habitat for wildlife and seasonal interest for visitors, restore species that were prominent in the park’s original design, and create a world-class collections of redbuds and witch hazels.
