Park Programs

Join us in The Battery

The Battery, true to its heritage as New York’s birthplace park, is open for enjoyment of the harbor and gardens. We’re working closely with The Battery’s partners in government to keep our employees and visitors safe.

In accordance with the City’s response to COVID-19, SeaGlass Carousel is closed until further notice. Birdwalks and tours will resume this fall. We welcome volunteers to work safely in our gardens. Please see guidance here.

Our City and its neighborhoods will pull together in spirit as we keep a healthy distance apart.
