Mission Statement

The mission of the Riverside Park Conservancy is to restore, maintain, and improve Riverside Park in partnership with the City of New York for the enjoyment and benefit of all New Yorkers. We support the preservation of the park’s historic landscape, structures, and monuments, engage the community in active stewardship of the park, and provide a wide range of public programs.

Description

In the 1870s Frederick Law Olmsted was in the midst of designing a lovely green space above the Hudson River on the Upper West Side of Manhattan -- Riverside Park. Over 60 years later, Robert Moses covered the railroad tracks, built the Rotunda, extended the park to the waterfront, and developed its recreation areas. Expansion south of 72nd Street began in the 1990s. Today, the Riverside Park we enjoy is more than 330 acres of beautiful parkland from 59th to 155th Street.
