    Awesome park
    Lovely little park in the middle of Manhattan. Many chairs and park benches for you to hang out and read a book. The picnic area is very nice but I’d check on their website before planning to go because lawns are often closed after it has rained the day before.

    Small Park
    On my travels around New York I discovered loads of small parks dotted around the city. It's great that there are so many of these around so that people can use them to meet up, walk their dogs or just relax and enjoy nature. Madison Square Park which is not too far from Madison Square Garden is in the shadow of the famous Flat Iron Building and a perfect place to sit and pause and admire the architecture as well as the bustle of people going here and there.

    Great park in the middle of Manhattan
    One of my favorite parks in the city. They always have cool art installations and it’s a great picnic spot in the summer. Dog park is great. Also you can see some notable buildings like Empire State, Flatiron, and NY Life Building.

    Beautiful
    Beautiful small park surrounded by the hustle & bustle of the city! Two dog parks are situated inside the park as well as lots of benches, & walking areas! There was an art sculpture set up as of Feb 2024 that was beautiful to check out!

Madison Square Park is a nice park next to the Flatirom Building. There is a reflecting pool, statues, monuments, and even a dog run. I recommend going here.

One of quite a few parks in NYC that is well organised and kept in pretty mint condition with activities for both humans and dogs.

This review is written by a class of local first graders after a field trip to Madison Square Park.

We believe that Madison Square Park is incredible. One reason is it is a great place to drink coffee and watch dogs. This is a really fun and nice thing to do because there is a dog park right there in the park!!! Another reason why we loved Madison Square Park is because there is a Shake Shack. This is a nice place to eat food and you can relax or read while enjoying your meal. There are many tables and chairs to sit on and eat comfortably. There is also a reflection pool! The reflection pool is good for a bird bath. The statues in Madison Square Park are awesome because you can look at them and observe them and see who made them. Also, it is like a scavenger hunt to find all of them! To sum up, this is why Madison Square Park is fantastic. We think you should go there for a nice trip!

We decided to sit here for a snack after a morning spent doing a lot of walking. There's even a Shake Shack there if you need extra snacks, and a public toilet! My daughter loved watching the starlings and pigeons.
