Unlike traditional conservancies that care for a specific place, NYRP is the only New York City conservancy that works citywide, bringing private resources to spaces that lack the support they need. As the steward of Sherman Creek Park and Highbridge Park in Northern Manhattan, the owner of 52 community gardens across the five boroughs, and the lead private partner of the City of New York in MillionTreesNYC, we focus our efforts in communities where safe, beautiful green space is needed most.

“The Five Boro Bike Tour is a great way to get out and bike in the streets,” said Barbara Wilks, founder of W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, to NYRP. “I was impressed by the tour last year, it was set up nicely, and was a great way see to the city,” she said. Wilks is a longtime supporter of NYRP, a member of the Chairman’s Council, and has been riding on Team NYRP for the last 3 years.
