Fort Greene Park Conservancy
Brooklyn’s first official park, Fort Greene Park is a national treasure. It was first championed by the borough’s most famous poet, Walt Whitman, and designed by the great landscape architectural team Olmstead and Vaux. The park’s unique Stanford and White designed Prison Ship Martyrs Monument is a memorial and crypt for the more than 11,500 prisoners of war who died during captivity during the Revolutionary War and is the nation’s largest Revolutionary Grave site.
Fort Greene Park Conservancy serves the community by working with NYC Parks to keep the park safe and well-maintained.The Conservancy’s free Summer Programming has attracted over 20,000 attendees per year and acknowledges the community’s desire for diverse and entertaining events…from music to Whitman-themed performance installations to experts leading Bat Walks.
