The Laying of the Lawn

Created with images taken by the park’s webcam from March 26 through April 2, this time-lapse video captures the preparation and laying of our 2010 lawn.


It begins with crews installing a new subsurface drainage system along the perimeter of the lawn, followed by the removal and leveling of sand, and finally, the installation of approximately 5,000 pieces of Kentucky Bluegrass sod from Long Island.


The time-lapse also captures that wonderful time in New York City when the weather transforms from dreary to downright beautiful in the course of a week. As usual, the gorgeous spring weather helped us welcome back the park’s characteristic lunchtime crowds!
