Today in Bryant Park
The lawn is open 5pm to 9pm.

Bryant Park is one of the world’s busiest public spaces.

More than 12 million people per year visit the park to enjoy over 1,000 free events including winter activities, cultural programming, daily amenities, and the park’s lush gardens featuring seasonal displays.

Each fall, the lawn is transformed into NYC’s only free admission ice skating rink, surrounded by the Holiday Shops and The Lodge bar and food hall.

Curious about how the park transformed from a haven of crime and drugs to Manhattan's Town Square? To learn more about the park’s recent history, origins, and architecture, join our public tour of the park every Wednesday.

Located on 42nd Street, the park's restrooms have won widespread praise and provide New Yorkers with luxurious public facilities open to everyone. A recent renovation solidified their status as, in the words of a former New York City Department of Parks Commissioner, “the gold standard for park comfort stations.”
