How to Give description
The Sutton Place Parks Vision Committee recently held two community meetings at our generous sponsors: A la Mode Ice Cream shop and TDBank. The meetings are part of a yearlong effort to help the Conservancy plan for the future of our precious parks. Members of the community and many park goers expressed how they use the park and what changes they would like to see.

Partnering with the faculty and students at Cathedral High School, we planted an all-native plant and pollinator garden designed to attract migratory birds and butterflies. The area is now an official monarch butterfly way-station for this endangered species.
A reusable self-guided tour of the plants is available from the “take one box“ at the park entrance, or email us at Info@SuttonPlaceParks.org to request your own copy.
Guests enjoyed the beautiful roof garden of 2 Sutton Place South, lovely hors d’oeuvres and guitar music, all the while supporting the Conservancy.
Honorary Chair, Matilda Raffa Cuomo, graciously praised the Conservancy’s work as did NYC Councilmen Daniel Garodnick and Ben Kallos.
Special thanks go to event chair Sandy Roth, 2 SPS host Dale Ellen Leff, TDBank and all those who supported the event.
Conservancy friends cleaned and greened the park at 54th Street, weeding, trimming trees and bushes and planting summer flowers. Everyone who participated received a free tee shirt and enjoyed treats from Dunkin Doughnuts and La Pain Quotidien. The highlight was a riverside concert by the Cathedral High School marching band, which got everyone in the mood.
Our Mission is to restore, beautify and enhance our 5 neighborhood parks from East 54th Street to East 58th Street along Sutton Place and Sutton Place South in Manhattan, New York City.
We partner with the New York City Parks Department and local community organizations on shared goals, highlighting environmental best practices, and strive to enhance our parks for the enjoyment of our neighbors and visitors.
Our vision is to provide an ongoing legacy for our Parks and future generations of Park users.
