Central Park is New York City’s 843-acre backyard. It is a beloved and essential public space that serves as an escape from the stresses of the City, a place to play, relax, and breathe a little easier. The Central Park Conservancy cares for the entire Park, making sure it remains clean, beautiful, free, and open to all, every day.
Conservancy employees tend to the largest and smallest details of the Park’s maintenance and restoration, while seeking innovative ways to nurture and manage a living masterpiece that feels welcoming to our 42 million visitors each year.
Funded primarily by individual donations, the nonprofit Central Park Conservancy has created a model for other parks and green spaces to partner with the public to reclaim and enhance their neighborhoods and their cities by investing in the power of the natural environment.
