What’s Happening at Stuyvesant Cove Park

Summer Concerts in the Park

Summer Concerts in the Park


The annual free outdoor concert series, which runs from mid-June through the month of July, has grown in popularity over the years, attracting audience members of all ages. A wide range of musical styles guarantees something for every musical taste.

Over the years, funding for the SCPA Music Series has been provided by a grant from the NY City Council with additional support from a variety of local community organizations and contributions from Friends of Stuyvesant Cove Park. The SCPA is pleased to welcome NYC Ferry as a sponsor of the 2019 Concert Series.

The needs of the park and the plantings are determined by the seasons.

Regularly scheduled Volunteer Days have been an effective way of keeping the community involved while maintaining the park to the highest standard. Tasks on any given Volunteer Day are determined by the park itself and coordinated by the Park Manager with mulching, weeding and pruning amongst the most common activities. New volunteers are always welcome.

The hours of service that the dedicated team of Park Angels provide have a dual benefit. Using a formula implemented by the EDC, the volunteer hours are translated into money that is then paid to Solar 1 to fund further maintenance efforts.


The SCPA coordinates guided bird walks through Stuyvesant Cove Park that are led by an experienced local birder. A variety of ducks, gulls and songbirds are often seen during these morning walks that begin at The Cove and progress into the neighboring Stuyvesant Town housing complex, another refuge for sparrows, woodpeckers, cardinals and many more species.
