Thankyou, Central Park Conservancy. NYC.
Central Park has been through some changes in its time. I was recently shocked to see on a TV programme that in the 1960's and 1970's the park looked very run down and dismal. I found it quite shocking and hard to believe after visiting New York City for the first time in 2013 and saw Central Park in all its glory. I fell in love with the wonderful scenery, flowers, trees, greenery, walkways, wildlife, water areas, bridges and community spirit, that is Central Park today.
All thanks to the Central Park Conservancy, a non profit company which have built up the park through the years since the 1980's and are continuing to maintain its high standard with its many workers/volunteers and organisers.
There is a video telling the story of how the transformation came about at http://www.centralparknyc.org/about/about-cpc/
