The Charles A. Dana Discovery Center serves as the Upper Park's visitor center and is home to a wide variety of the Central Park Conservancy's free family and community programs.

The Dana Center offers seasonal exhibits in its Great Hall, often in collaboration with other City cultural institutions. Outside the Great Hall is a small deck overlooking the Meer with an unimpeded vista of the Park's landscape to the south. Educational programs are held throughout the year upstairs.

Adjacent to the Center is a small plaza where jazz concerts and other events (such as the Halloween Pumpkin Sail of candlelit Jack O'Lanterns across the Meer) take place. Young plantings of bald cypress, red maple, and a weeping willow – all trees that thrive at the water's edge – surround the plaza.

Drag the street view to look around 360°.

4/ While these are labor-intensive processes, we do it for the love of the Park and the 42 million annual visitors who enjoy it each year. Learn more about our work caring for the lawns here:

3/ To mitigate this issue and restore the lawns, this spring the #CentralParkConservancy will aerate the soil to give it air and relieve stress on the grass. We’ll also overseed, the practice of planting seeds on top of existing grass.

2/ Snow cushions & protects lawns, which typically spend the quiet winter months resting for spring and summer. Our lawns are experiencing more foot traffic than usual this winter, which is compounded by wet, unfrozen soil. When exposed, soil is at high risk of erosion and weeds.

1/ Still no snow in Central Park? 🤔 Lawns make up 30% of the Park and caring for them is no easy task—especially without snow's help. The recent lack of snow and warm temperatures aren’t just depriving New Yorkers of classic snow-day fun. They’re also impacting the landscapes.
