Paradise on Earth


All NYRP community gardens hold a minimum of 20 open hours per week. Please check the bulletin board at the garden for times and details.

Using simple, elegant geometry, NYRP’s Capital team is in the process of transforming the Paradise on Earth Garden/Fannie’s Garden in the Bronx with a beautiful multipurpose raised deck, an open area for kids to run made with natural turf, and a captivating shade structure. NYRP coupled with Sawyer | Berson, a brilliant interdisciplinary architecture and design firm to deliver a unique addition to the Morrisania neighborhood. You can see a photo of how the garden looked before NYRP renovations, and the current progress being made on our gallery page. Enjoy!

This garden was founded in 1981 as part of the Police Athletic League program.
