The Fall Season

As summer draws to a close, we’re looking to the next season of activities in the park. Fall visitors to the park will enjoy exciting program returns in addition to brand new things to try!
After a summer hiatus, Bryant Park Fencing returns to the Library Terrace next Friday, September 10 with free lessons taught by the Manhattan Fencing Center. Equipment is provided and no prior experience is necessary. All we ask is that you pre-register for the lessons each week by calling (212) 382-2255. This is also a great one to watch! You never know who might stop by. The spring lessons finished with a visit from Olympic Silver Medalist Tim Morehouse.

In a couple of weeks, Birding Tours will also return to the park. In the spring, the New York City Audubon Society held guided tours in the park, which led birdwatchers to spot and identify the different varieties of birds that stopped into the park along their northward migratory path. The fall series of the Birding Tours will give park patrons a chance to spot birds in the opposite migratory pattern.

Wednesdays, 8:00am – 9:00am

Meet just inside the park at 42nd Street & 6th Avenue

Beginning next week, anyone can learn to juggle for free in the park at lunchtime! All skill levels are welcome to join the jugglers in the park, who will be happy to get newcomers started, or model a trick that you have in mind.
