The Park Needs Us

Visitors, volunteers, supporters, and the Central Park Conservancy staff. Together we keep the Park a welcoming backyard for all of NYC.

The Park needs us. But who’s “us”?

It takes expert work year-round by the Central Park Conservancy to keep the Park healthy, clean, and ready to welcome 42 million annual visitors. But everything we do—from maintaining sustainable landscapes and addressing complex restoration projects to collecting (literal) tons of trash and engaging with the communities that use this space—relies on a powerful collaboration between our staff, supporters, volunteers, and visitors.
