It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (For those of us who maintain parks, at least.) After a season recuperation, Battery Park City’s lawns began opening on a rolling basis today through Friday, April 15. We thank all our residents and visitors for their patience and look forward to a spring, summer, and fall of fun across our 36 acres of green and public spaces.

As a reminder, “Pet Free Area” signage is also installed on our lawns. While leashed pets are permitted on hard surfaces throughout Battery Park City, they are not permitted on parks lawns and green areas. Read more: It’s a Dog’s Life in BPC.
