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.

Experience a treat for the senses with our seasonal exhibition, Sensory Gardens. Over 2,000 plants have been added in our summer garden display.

A sensory garden is a garden environment that is designed with the purpose of stimulating and engaging the five basic senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and sound. These types of gardens are popular with and beneficial to both children and adults, especially those who have sensory processing disorders, but can have benefits for everyone.

A journey through the senses can add to the experience of being in a garden, and the exploration can help bring relaxation to those who experience stress. These gardens are a way to encourage our visitors to explore the gardens in ways beyond sight. Fragrant sages, agastache, and herbs will create a distinct aroma. The sounds of bees and gently blowing grasses will distract you from the noise of the city while soft celosia and dusty miller will provide new textures to the gardens. A variety of herbs and culinary plants will also be on display to inspire.

Tune in to your surroundings, connect to nature, and notice effects it has on your senses.
