843 Acres of Thanks
With the holidays around the corner, we're taking a moment to review what we're thankful for. Thank you to everyone who gave time, love, and support to Central Park this year! Here are a few groups we especially want to thank:
- Our Supporters
Donations by Conservancy supporters cover 75% of the budget needed to maintain Central Park each year. Thanks to our supporters, the Park has never looked as good as it does today, even as 40 million pairs of feet travel through it each year. Thank you!
- Our Staff
The Conservancy's staff of just 300 takes care of all 843 acres of Central Park. Members of the Conservancy's staff are outside 365 days a year taking care of the Park.
- Our Volunteers
Each year, Conservancy volunteers donate tens of thousands of hours of work in the Park. Our volunteers are the friendly face of the Park and they help keep our gardens vibrant and our landscapes clean. The health of the Park relies on the generosity and dedication of their work.
- Our Friends on Facebook and Twitter
We love hearing from our friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter. Every day we receive messages from people around the world expressing their love for Central Park. Thank you to everyone who has shared photos, comments and memories all year!
Thank you to everyone who makes Central Park so extraordinary!
