Playground Partners Galentine’s Celebration

Each year, the Playground Partners host a winter fundraiser to support the daily care and maintenance of Central Park's 21 playgrounds.

This year, our annual Winter Luncheon has been reimagined as a virtual Galentine’s Celebration to be held on Wednesday, February 10. We will be featuring guest speakers who share our love for New York City and understand the importance of protecting our crown jewel, Central Park. Grab your gals and join us for a fun celebration!

Playground Partners is a program of the Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy.

Please purchase tickets by January 25.
