Central Park. New York

New York gardens. Aquatic Ecosystems At Central Park In New York. Opening Day: March 22, 2014.

Exhibit Location: Charles A. Dana Discovery Center, 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues. Dates and Times: Daily, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

When you think about landscapes in Central Park, they’re usually of the green variety – rolling meadows, lush gardens, and leafy woodlands. But the Park is also home to liquid landscapes: seven water bodies that compose almost 20 percent of the Park’s total area.

On March 22nd, the Central Park Conservancy will open a new educational exhibit that explores the significance of water in the Park’s history and design, its vibrant aquatic ecosystems, and the Conservancy’s care of 150 acres of water in the middle of a dense urban landscape.

Ponds, Pipes, and People: Water in Central Park doesn’t stop at the water bodies on the Park’s surface. It digs deeper, highlighting the pipes, valves, and underground infrastructure that made the Park’s creation – and makes the Conservancy’s maintenance of the Park possible.

With 40,000 visitors last year, the Dana Discovery Center will be home to the interactive exhibit. Group gallery tours are available to families, individuals, students, and educators with two-weeks advance registration required. Starting in April, aquatic discovery journals and exploration guides will be available to help facilitate visitors’ experiences with water bodies in the Park.

Ponds, Pipes, and People: Water in Central Park is a free exhibit developed by the Central Park Conservancy Institute for Urban Parks and is generously supported through a grant from HSBC in conjunction with the HSBC Water Programme.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
