The Fort Tryon Park Trust is continuing the restoration and revitalization begun in the 1980s. Each partnership makes invaluable contributions to that effort, whether by funding a critical restoration initiative or supporting free programs that enhance public enjoyment and foster stewardship.
We thank our major supporters
Cleveland H. Dodge Foundation
Four rusticated drinking fountains that Rockefeller hand-picked for Fort Tryon Park were reactivated along the Broadway side of the park thanks to a gift from the Cleveland H.Dodge Foundation.
The Achelis and Bodman Foundations
Peter Jay Sharp Foundation
With funds secured from the Peter Jay Sharp Foundation, the trust initiated the restoration of the three-acre Alpine Garden, with its carved stone staircases, rock garden plantings, and grotto water feature. Arthur Ross Foundation. A gift from the Arthur Ross Foundation enabled the development of a more than-one-mile winter walk of conifers and evergreen plantings.
Rhodebeck Charitable Trust
The late David Rockefeller gave a gift of $1M in honor of the Park’s 75th birthday in 2015. Over the years, he has supported many initiatives in the park by advocating for the city to fund restoration work, such as on the Grand Staircase.
Through these collaborations, the work of the Fort Tryon Park Trust is able to provide community outreach initiatives and programming in the park, and support stewardship efforts to assist in the park’s restoration. The Greenacre Foundation has provided support for horticultural staff, plantings and natural history programs over three decades.
