Get Involved with Central Park Playgrounds

The Playground Partners program was founded in 1991 by the Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy to maintain the quality and cleanliness of Central Park's 21 playgrounds. The funds raised through Playground Partners membership and event contributions go directly towards the preservation, care, and daily inspection of these cherished play spaces.
