Our Impact

Everyone deserves green space.

For the past 28 years, New York Restoration Project has transformed underserved public spaces into cherished community hubs. Today, over 1.6 million New Yorkers live within a 10-minute walk of an NYRP green space.

NYRP maintains 52 community gardens across the five boroughs for residents to grow fresh produce, connect with their neighbors, and relax in nature.

In three NYC parks, NYRP’s innovative forest and shoreline restoration work supports critical ecosystem services to cool neighborhoods, improve air quality, and absorb excess storm water.

And in the city’s least-green and most densely populated neighborhoods, NYRP works with local partners to turn underutilized outdoor spaces into productive new gardens.
