Important Message for COVID-19 From Executive Director of Madison Square Park.

Dear Community,

The safety and well-being of our staff and community is our top priority. As Madison Square Park continues to monitor the developments of COVID-19, the Park will remain open and maintain normal operating hours, as recommended by the City of New York.

If you visit for a moment of calm in these challenging times, we ask that you practice social distancing by keeping at least six feet apart from your neighbor to protect your health and those around you. We also ask that you please help us keep the Park clean and green by taking your trash with you.

Be well,
Keats Myer
Executive Director
Madison Square Park Conservancy
