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.

Join together with friends or family to support the Park with our PaveMark program. With the use of this group fundraising tool, you and your loved ones can raise funds for your shared 843-acre backyard.
