Gilder Run

Leave a lasting mark in Central Park with a personalized granite paving stone on Gilder Run.

A paving stone on Gilder Run (on the path leading to Bridge No. 24 at the southeast corner of the Reservoir) gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting mark in Central Park. Carve your name, tribute, or memory into granite stones and they will become part of the landscape in perpetuity.

A limited number of stones are available for donations of $3,500.

  • Celebrate life's important milestones, such as a birthday or anniversary
  • Commemorate the completion of a marathon or race
  • Show your appreciation for someone special
  • Honor the memory of a loved one

Your tax-deductible gift supports the Central Park Conservancy's mission to restore, manage, and enhance Central Park.
