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.

Camellia Collection

Camellia Collection

Camellia sp.
Camelia

Camellia’s show stopping pink and white flowers are a burst of bright color amidst Madison Square Park’s fall foliage. While camellias typically bloom from October through May, ours are fall bloomers, as the New York City winters are too harsh for the plants’ flowers. In fact, the park’s coastal location and mild climate make it one of the northernmost collections of camellia in the United States. Even in winter, however, the camellias’ evergreen leaves provide the park with a welcome splash of green. Long before they reached the shores of America, camellias had been cultivated in the gardens of China and Japan for centuries.
