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.

Worth Square Monument

Worth

The Worth Square Monument is the final resting place of General William Jenkins Worth. It’s the second oldest monument in New York City and one of only two monuments in the city that also acts as a mausoleum, the other being the General Grant National Memorialor Grant’s Tombwhich can be found in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.

Located at Broadway and 5th Avenue, between 24th and 25th Streets, the 51-foot long monument is made from granite. Its central decorative bands are inscribed with battle sites significant to his career. Attached to its front is a bronze equestrian relief of the General. The four corner granite piers that once held decorative lampposts now support an elaborate ornamental cast-iron fence with pickets that are replicas of Worth’s Congressional Sword of Honor. Visitors can find a relic box in its cornerstone.

Born in Hudson, NY, General Worth served in the War of 1812, the Second Seminole War, and the Mexican-American War.
