NOTICE: The NYC Parks Department did a beautiful job renovating the park lawn this spring. Now it’s open and has never looked better! Be advised we are working with Park Gardener Sarah to limit access to the lawn on rainy days when the young grass is most susceptible. We appreciate your understanding.

SPECIAL THANKS: We now have free wi-fi in the park thanks to the BMCC and to the NYC Parks Department! Thank you to BMCC Vice President Scott Anderson, BMCC IT Director Amish Batra, and to Ralph Musolino of Parks for providing this service to our community.

We would like to thank the talented Jaime Viñas of Vinas Design for designing our Halloween posters and others for the last several years. Thank you to Rietdesign for designing our new, fabulous posters.

Welcome to Washington Market Park

Washington Market Park is Tribeca’s neighborhood park for relaxing, playing with the kids and visiting with friends. The park includes a basketball court and tennis court, a community garden and a gazebo for hosting events and parties. The park is open from 7 a.m. to dusk, seven days a week.

 The Friends of Washington Market Park is a non-profit neighborhood organization that produces free public events in the park and supports park restoration and improvements. Our events include the summer concert series, spring and fall planting days for children, a Halloween parade and party, as well as seasonal parties throughout the year.

Our Twitter/Instagram/Facebook campaign is called #babygrass, and the premise is to encourage adults, students, children, caregivers, etc to take selfies with the grass, then post them. With your help, we’ll be able to keep our lawn healthy and green through the summer and beyond. We are hoping children can help spread the word about how baby grass needs care and help protect it.  Photo Bombing, Selfies and Creativity Welcome!
