Our expert staff care for the Park’s trees, gardens, water bodies, and woodlands year-round, but we depend on thousands of volunteers to help us maintain a welcoming space for visitors and wildlife alike. And you could be one of them!
Explore our volunteer opportunities below.
Flexibly Scheduled Volunteer Opportunities
Our Flexibly Scheduled Volunteer Opportunities allow you to sign up for volunteers projects as you are available. These projects happen on a variety of days and times throughout the year, flexing with the seasons and needs of the Park.
Volunteer OpportunityMake an immediate difference in the Park with one of our seasonal teams—painting and weeding in spring and summer, raking in fall, and shoveling snow in winter.
Join us any Saturday to help with landscape maintenance tasks like raking, mulching, pulling weeds, and planting.
Volunteer OpportunityStudents are invited to give back to the City by volunteering in Central Park. Help maintain and beautify the grounds through a variety of Park projects.

Not sure if you'd like to start regularly volunteering with us? Try out one of our Community Volunteer Days open to the public where volunteers focus on making room for the bloom in the Park.
Committed Volunteer Opportunities
Our Committed Volunteer Opportunities allow volunteers to commit to a regularly scheduled weekly shift. These projects require additional screening, training, and have limited recruitment.
