Madison Square Park

With the iconic Flatiron Building presiding over you, enjoy a peaceful retreat in Midtown at one of Manhattan’s most iconic parks.

Madison Square Park is located in the heart of Manhattan, but it offers an urban oasis. Stroll around its winding paths, attend a concert on its large grassy yard or simply sit down on a park bench and watch the city unfold before you.

The park hosts events throughout the year, but its most popular events take place in summer and fall. See a variety of musical talent perform in Mad. Sq. Music’s popular concert series.

Discover an array of art displayed in Madison Square Park. The Mad. Sq. Art Program partners with famous international artists to install outdoor pieces that mesh with the environment. Walk through and see the latest sculptures and art on the grounds.

Bring your children to events put on by Mad. Sq. Kids. Attend a show in the park’s youth-oriented summer concert series. The Storytime series introduces young readers to literature and art. Let kids entertain themselves for hours on the park’s colorful playground.

Take advantage of the great food available in and around Madison Square Park. Find dozens of restaurants, appealing to every budget and taste, within blocks of the park. Attend a culinary event in the park’s Conservancy.

Walk along the park’s winding trails. Enjoy a peaceful moment near the Southern Fountain. Check out the animals playing in the park’s popular dog run. Stake out a park bench and enjoy the area’s relaxing atmosphere.

Lounge or have a picnic in one of the park’s green spaces. Although at least two lawns are always open, check the green signs for closures. Enjoy the lawns beginning Memorial Day every year.

Find Madison Square Park in Midtown Manhattan, centrally located, with bus and subway stops right outside its borders. The wedge-like Flatiron Building looms over its southern border. Visit the park daily from morning through midnight.
