About us

The Battery Conservancy was created in 1994 as a 501(c)(3) not–for–profit educational corporation to rebuild and revitalize The Battery, the 25-acre public park at the southern tip of Manhattan, and its major landmark, Castle Clinton National Monument. The Conservancy spearheads this dramatic transformation in partnership with City, State, and Federal governments and with individualscorporations, and foundations in the private sector. With much of the physical transformation of the park accomplished, The Battery Conservancy works daily to operate and maintain this unique asset, in partnership with The New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.100% of The Battery Conservancy’s annual budget is generated by gifts from the private sector.

The Conservancy honors and preserves The Battery’s heritage by rebuilding the park with sustainable design and practices while respecting and interpreting the park’s rich past. The landscape design protects the natural environment while meeting the needs of a growing residential population, crowds of bustling commuters, and the millions of the world’s visitors who come to see the Statue of Liberty and experience New York Harbor.

To date, the Conservancy and its partners have ensured that 98 million dollars in public funds be invested in the park’s revitalization and transformation. This public investment is leveraged by 48 million dollars raised by the Conservancy for additional physical upgrades, design, and ongoing operation, maintenance, and programming.ublic space through design excellence and innovation.
