The Battery, true to its heritage as New York’s birthplace park, welcomes everyone to enjoy our programs and special events. At the same time, we are continuing to work closely with The Battery’s partners in government to keep our employees and visitors safe and healthy.
Visitors to The Battery can now follow a path through the center of the park that is highlighted by educational banners displaying photos of some of the many birds that live in or pass through this area.
Come along with us for Bird Walks at The Battery led by NYC Audubon! Explore the diversity of migrating birds that find food and habitat in The Battery’s toxin-free gardens and lawns.
