Reasons to Visit During the Fall Transition

At first glance, the park may seem like it's under some heavy duty construction as we prepare for our winter activities. We do our best to limit this disruption. We will only close areas of the park when absolutely necessary for Shop assembly or equipment storage. Pathways are kept as clear as possible, so you can enjoy the park around all of this construction activity. While we wait for Citi Pond and The Holiday Shops to open, there is still plenty of activity in the park, and many reasons to visit as the park transitions from summer to fall and winter.

Take in those fall sun rays. Grab a chair around the Fountain Terrace, or try your hand at Chess or Backgammon, which has been relocated to the plaza along 42nd Street. 

Chilly day making it a tad too cold to sit in the park? Get the blood flowing with a ping pong match or petanque lesson. Ping Pong will be open and staffed with equipment through Thanksgiving, while Petanque will play in their regular spot on the gravel behind The Holiday Shops as long as the weather allows. You can also learn to juggle for free at lunch, and on Tuesday evenings. 
Enjoy a warming cocktail at the Southwest Porch, and test your movie knowledge at our weekly Fall Movie Trivia Series with Trivia, A.D. 

Treat the kiddos to a spin on Le Carrousel, or play Mancala and Jenga at the Games Area. And then come back next Saturday, October 27th for the ghoul-est party around with our annual Halloween celebration of Trick and Treats at Le Carrousel.
