Dining, sunbathing, and a multitude of activities make the Lawn NYC's favorite backyard
Bryant Park’s lawn is planted with a rye/fescue/bluegrass mix. The lawn is as long as a football field (300 feet) and 215 feet wide. It is occasionally closed for aeration, fertilization, or protection during wet weather. We hold many free, large-scale events on the lawn, like Yoga, Movie Nights, and Picnic Performances, so it also will often need rest before and/or after the event.
The lawn is usually open for lunch and through the evening. However, lawn hours are subject to change daily, so please visit our homepage for the daily lawn message.
