Spring Guide

It’s spring in Central Park, and we’re celebrating with the Central Park Conservancy’s official guide to the season.

We love all the seasons in Central Park, but there’s something about this time of year that really puts a spring in our step. True, we had a warm winter in NYC, but we're all for budding trees and blooming flowers.

Looking for a formal flower garden? Want to take a walk on the wildflower side? Ready to bow to the Park’s most royal migrating pollinator? In search of cherry blossoms? However you celebrate spring, Central Park has you covered. It's time to head out to the Park with our Official Spring Guide.

Before we begin, don’t forget to bookmark our Alerts page for information on scheduled or weather-related Park closures. Another great spot for Central Park updates and information? Our social channels. Give us a follow, tag us from the Park @CentralParkNYC, and keep up to date on all the goings-on in these 843 acres.

Let Your Park Knowledge Blossom

A Living Bouquet

This spring, give a Mother's Day bouquet that will keep blooming year after year after year. With each donation of $50 or more to our Tulips and Daffodils fund, our expert gardeners will plant bulbs in honor of someone you love. When you see those beautiful bulbs bloom this spring, remember not to pick them! It’s important to leave all flowering plants alone to keep them healthy and allow all Park visitors to enjoy their beauty.
