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.

8,000 vivid tulips are currently on view in Madison Square Park, as we welcome back spring with the Garden Jewels exhibition. From the Reflecting Pool to Seward Monument, the Fountain to Conkling Monument, nearly every display bed in the park features different colors and varieties of these blossoms. This display is a homecoming for these spring-bloom annuals—the first time they have been on view in the park in four years.

Tulips have been part of New York City’s culture since they were first brought here by Dutch settlers in 1624, at the very founding of what was then called New Amsterdam. Early enthusiasm for the flowers in the settlement sparked a cultural sensation known as Tulip Mania, an event in which the settler’s appetite for the flowers was at such a frenzied pitch that they were actually treated as currency.

Watch the park come alive this spring as we welcome back these seasonal favorites.
