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.

Redbud

Madison Square Park boasts 35 varieties of redbuds, among the most beautiful native trees of the Northeast. They blossom in the park during April, when clusters of stunning pink flowers along their stems and branches announce the return of warmer days. When these flowers fall, the trees’ heart-shaped foliage begins to unfold. The leaves of redbuds are especially important to leaf cutter bees, who use them to create their hives. Redbuds generally have a short trunk and rounded crown of foliage, and mature trees can grow to up to 30 feet in height.
