Fort Tryon Park needs special care to stay in top condition and to preserve the capital improvements made to date. The Fort Tryon Park Trust was established to provide for the long–term care and maintenance of the Heather Garden and Fort Tryon Park. The trust funds horticultural supplies, seasonal staff, equipment, and restoration work, as well as public programs for the community.
