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.

Oval Lawn

MSPC FallViews 100820 205 1

The Oval Lawn is the beating emerald heart at the very center of the park. On warm days, it’s prime real estate for sun-bathers, morning meditators, picnickers, and city dwellers looking to spend an afternoon in the park. 

Covered in a blanket of Kentucky Bluegrass and Fescue, the Oval Lawn is one of the most popular green spaces in the city. As a public art exhibition space, it rivals the city’s great cultural institutions—there is no more desired section of the park for our commissioned artists to show their work. 

Among the many monuments and amenities that call our seven-acres home, the Oval Lawn is the park’s most sought-after destination.
