Lawn Closures

posted April 2015
We understand the community enjoys using this lawn as an active playspace, and so do we!

From late April until early June, the lawn will be closed for its annual sodding. This summer, Parks Gardener Richie will have the park lawn open the majority of the time. However, he will need to limit access to the lawn when conditions are soggy and the grass is most susceptible to damage, in hopes the lawn will remain green throughout the summer and fall.

When raining or in soggy conditions, the lawn will be closed. When the lawn dries a bit, it will be reopened.

Thank you for your understanding.

Compost collection has come to Tribeca

GrowNYC is running a pilot program to expand current food scrap collections from NYC households at select Greenmarkets.  This means you and your Tribeca neighbors can bring your food scraps to the Tribeca Greenmarket every Saturday between 8am and 1pm.

What types of food scraps are usable in compost? Accepted materials include fruit and vegetable scraps, non-greasy food scraps (rice, pasta, bread, cereal etc.), coffee grounds and filters, tea bags, egg and nut shells, pits, cut or dried flowers, houseplants and potting soil.

Food scraps dropped at the Tribeca Greenmarket will be composted into a soil additive that will nourish street trees, gardens and more — instead of wasting away in landfills. Please consider participating and spreading the word! Visit www.grownyc.org/compost to learn more.
