2020 Global Gardens
Come and tour the world in Madison Square Park. Our summer display, Global Gardens, features plants native to five continents from around the world, and Park visitors can browse our curated collection. Cultures throughout the ages have celebrated gardens for crops, pleasure, and beauty—each bringing their own sense of style and cultivation. This display showcases forms and textures that are as diverse as the people who have discovered them.
