    Organization Mission

    Madison Square Park Conservancy is the not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization licensed by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation to manage Madison Square Park. The Conservancy is responsible for raising 98% of the funds necessary to operate the Park, including the brilliant horticulture, park maintenance, sanitation, security, and free cultural programs for Park visitors of all ages.

    Our mission is to protect, nurture, and enhance Madison Square Park, a dynamic seven-acre public green space, creating an environment that fosters moments of inspiration.

    As stewards, we engage the community through our beautiful gardens, inviting amenities, and world-class programming.

    We believe that, in an urban setting, everyone deserves access to a park that allows for recreation, respite, and reflection.
