Our Vision is to come together as a community to ensure a vibrant, urban greenspace—a sanctuary, a meeting place—for friends, visitors and neighbors, that inspires our imaginations, fosters friendships, and offers calm amidst hectic city life.


Our Mission

Our mission is to restore, enhance and maintain Verdi Square Park, in partnership with the City of New York, for the enjoyment and benefit of our diverse community; to engage the community in active stewardship of the park; and to promote a connection to nature through educational programming especially for children and youth.

“People respond positively to well maintained greenspaces . . . they’ve become a hallmark of successful public spaces.”
— Liam Kavanagh, First Deputy Commissioner, NYC Parks
