For everyday visits, the spacious dog run, colorful playground, and large grassy area make for a happy escape from the busy midtown area in which Madison Square Park is located. Free Wifi gives the laptop-toting set the opportunity to check their email outside, while the more traditional bring paperbacks to read on the lush lawn and comfy benches.
The artwork peppering the park’s grounds is sure to thrill those with an eye for art with its exciting blend of temporary exhibits by new artists and classic monuments that testify to Madison Square Park's 150-year history.
On sunny summer days, Madison Square Park becomes one of the city’s hottest destinations. Lines of hungry visitors craving a taste of the Shake Shack's milkshakes and hamburgers, some of the best in the city, wrap around the block. Inside the park, children bop their way through summer vacation at the Mad. Sq. Kids concert series, and big kids enjoy a series all their own, Mad. Sq. Music, spanning an eclectic mix of genres.
With its varied activities and its landscaped grounds, Madison Square Park offers attractions for everyone.
