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.
