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.

Crabapple

Crabapple

Malus sp.
Crabapple

There are at least three different varieties of Crabapple trees planted in the park. Crabapples are part of the rose family, and originate from the mountains of Kazakhstan. The park’s records and the tree’s ability to crossbreed, make it challenging for our horticulturalists to distinguish all the varieties we have at the park. 

The Crabapple’s popularity across the world is because of its year-round interest. Early spring blooms produce an array of fragrant pink, red, and white flowers. While the leaves change for fall, an abundance of small apples appear upon their branches. These fruits come in many colors:  golden yellow, scarlet, and purple, and attract birds and squirrels throughout the winter.
