The Central Park Conservatory's 'Forever Green' Initiative
January 27, 2018
Learn more about Central Park Conservatory's comprehensive plan to preserve the landscape of Central Park.
The Conservatory has been a continual protector of Central Park and the myriad of visitors to the part and to NYC.
A $25 million cornerstone gift to Forever Green has been pledged by the Thompson Family Foundation to help fund the restoration of Belvedere Castle, the historic Children’s District, including the Dairy and Kinderberg, and Chess & Checkers House. Restoration of the North Woods and the Ramble have begun, as well as planning for the Naumburg Bandshell, the Conservatory Garden, arches, bridges and other structures throughout the Park.
The Conservatory is dedicated to preserving the vision of the pair of architechts credited for designing the park, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.
