Paint Program

Vounteer painting bench

Come paint in Central Park! Help maintain and beautify Central Park by painting fencing, railing, and more than 9,000 iconic benches.

Everything needed to complete painting projects is included (paint, brushes, gloves, safety equipment, and supervision). For your convenience and safety, please wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, and clothing you don’t mind getting paint on.

No experience is necessary. On-site training is provided, but individuals must be 18 years or older.

Join one of our Paint Teams on alternating Mondays and Tuesdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Sessions take place March through October and are open to the general public.

Sign-ups open approximately one week before each session, and space is limited. Please register online before attending. The day before the session, you will receive an email with the meeting place and project details.

New Applicants: Please fill out a volunteer application for the Painting Program.
