Recreational Resurfacing of the Path East of Sheep Meadow

The path east of Sheep Meadow, adjacent to the Mall and south of the East 72nd Street cross drive, is a popular space for recreational activities, including roller skating, roller hockey, learning to ride a bike, and more. It is also an area that is heavily used by permitted special events to set up activations and finish line festivals for runs and walks.

As a result, it is in need of resurfacing, which the Central Park Conservancy will conduct in May 2023. We will also paint new recreational lines to facilitate use of the space. The area will be closed to the public during this time.

The resurfaced asphalt and line striping will provide an improved experience for Park visitors. It will also be better able to withstand the impact of necessary vehicle uses for special events and Park maintenance.
