Events Each year, both The Riverside Park Conservancy and The Garden People schedule work days and volunteer sessions where everyone is welcome to pitch in to help and to meet the gardeners who help tend spots throughout Riverside Park.
We’ve had a great season in the 91st Street Garden and are looking forward to 2023! Please check back for upcoming events with The Garden People next year on this page.
In the meantime, there’s something to look at in the garden in every season, even in the heart of winter when snow blankets the dried blooms, grasses, and shrubs. So we hope you’ll bundle up and stop by during the months ahead to enjoy a quiet moment at the garden.
