Partnerships Lab

The Central Park Conservancy Institute for Urban Parks is pleased to launch our newest program, the Partnerships Lab. The Partnerships Lab leverages the resources and expertise of the Conservancy to help park organizations build their own capacity to plan, develop, and maintain great public places.

Through the Partnerships Lab, the Institute will engage in 6- to 12-month collaborative, creative partnerships with organizations that support urban parks in order to help strengthen their ability to foster great public spaces. By strengthening organizations that support parks, the Institute seeks to ensure that all communities receive the social, economic, environmental, and health benefits that parks provide when well-planned and maintained. The Institute will select 3-5 New York City park organizations and 3-5 urban park organizations from other US cities each year.

The 2019-2020 Partnerships Lab application period has ended.
