Park Programs

Join us in The Battery

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.

Bird Banners

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.
