Your financial support allows the Union Square Partnership to sustain programs that benefit Union Square Park and the millions of people that visit each year. By making a donation, you will be helping to improve our thriving, vibrant community through a number of programs.
Below are six Examples of how past contributions have improved our district.
1. Greenery in our malls
With your support, we overhauled the medians along Union Square East and Park Avenue South with eighty new columnar trees, and thousands of perennials and shrubs.
2. Brighter Park Lighting
We upgraded park lighting with seventy brighter, energy-efficient LED bulbs to provide greater illumination at night.
3. Distinguished Public Art
Working with our partners, we brought South African sculptor Lionel Smit's stunning piece, Morphous, to the Square for his first United States installation.
4. More Free Events
We offered more complimentary community programming than ever before including fitness classes for all ages, children's activities, live music and dance performances, and two incredible movie nights.
5. Enhanced Landscaping
Funds raised are vital to the upkeep of Union Square Park's landscaping. We invest in reseeding of the lawn, seasonal plantings in the park, as well as maintaining over one hundred planters throughout the area.
6. Even More Public Seating
Just in time for the summer season, we purchased six hundred new pieces of outdoor furniture to upgrade the seating areas in the park and public plazas. Our Clean Team manages the areas with extended hours during the warmer months.
