Stewards of Seward Park Hosting Fundraiser for Improvements
The Seward Park Conservancy – stewards of the three-acre greenspace along Essex and East Broadway – is soliciting for donations. They’re hosting a fundraiser party this evening to fatten up the piggy bank.
Tickets to the event cost $35, which grants you a membership in the Conservancy. The lump-sum collection will help see through the following goals in the upcoming year.
- Building on our relationship with the Parks Department to restore more of the Park, including historic Schiff Fountain;
- Advocating for increased Park funding from government and private sources;
- Expanding summer programming for children and families;
- Securing more resources for the maintenance and upkeep of Seward Park.
Seward Park debuted in 1903, and is considered the very first municipal playground built in the country. Parks Without Borders awarded a $40 million prize for greenspaces throughout the city back in May. Seward Park shared in those winnings.
