~ The Central Park Conservancy, a private, nonprofit organization, was formed in 1980 by a group of concerned citizens determined to improve Central Park. Today, we manage Central Park under a contract with the City of New York. ~

Over its 160-year history, the Park has experienced several cycles of restoration and decline. The era of decline in the 1960s and 1970s led to the Central Park Conservancy's formation. The Central Park Conservancy is uniquely qualified to prevent future declines and ensure the Park's care for current and future generations.

Thanks to the generosity of many individuals, corporations, foundations, and the City of New York, the Central Park Conservancy has invested over $950 million to date in the Park, making it a model for urban parks worldwide. We provide 75% of Central Park's $67 million annual operating budget, and are responsible for all aspects of Park maintenance, as well as capital improvements and restorations.
