In 2015, the Central Park Conservancy is celebrating 35 years of Central Park restoration, preservation and conservation. As part of the celebratory year, the Conservancy has released an interactive timeline of important milestones in Central Park history, with articles, photos and videos for several notable events over the Park’s 157 years.
The mission of Central Park Conservancy, a private nonprofit organization founded in 1980, is to restore, manage, and enhance Central Park in partnership with the public, for the enjoyment of all. Central Park Conservancy raises 75% of the annual budget essential to keeping Central Park beautiful.
You can check out the interactive timeline on Central Park Conservancy’s website.
