The Sutton Place Parks Conservancy Fete is part of a year-long effort by the new Sutton Place Parks Conservancy to involve park visitors in planning the future of these five scenic parks, as well as a sixth new park under construction linking the East 56th and East 57th Street parks into a waterfront promenade.
Along with scheduled events, visitors are encouraged to stroll by all the five parks and to visit the new migratory butterfly garden at the 58th Street park. Conservancy volunteers will be posted at each park to answer questions and solicit ideas for the future of the parks from visitors.
