The mission of Central Park Playground Partners is to maintain the quality and cleanliness of Central Park’s 21 playgrounds. Our playgrounds embody the highest standards of safety, innovation, and creativity, but these standards cannot be sustained without donations like yours. Being a Playground Partner is a wonderful way to directly engage in your community of families and neighbors. We seek to promote stewardship and environmentalism throughout the Park, bringing unique opportunities for camaraderie and friendship for you and your children. The funds we receive go directly towards the preservation, care, and daily inspection of these cherished play spaces. With your generosity, our Playgrounds can continue to enrich the quality of life for present and future generations of children and be an essential part of a healthy childhood for all families living in New York City.
The Playground Partners of the Women’s Committee of Central Park Conservancy hosts its Annual Family Party at Heckscher Playground, inside the Park at Central Park South and 7th Avenue, the third Wednesday of May. The event is a family-friendly fundraiser with activities geared toward children six months to 10 years of age.
PGP TOTS is a subcommittee of the Playground Partners specifically for moms with children zero to three years old. PGP TOTS offers moms the opportunity to network, share resources, and discover all that Central Park has to offer its youngest visitors through informal gatherings such as play dates, stroller walks, and informational lectures.
