The Friends of Seward Park, are passionate for the history, present and future of Seward Park.  We strive to preserve the beauty of our park and to bring awareness of its potential to the community.

Note : The Schiff Fountain (1895), designed by architect Arnold W. Brunner, was moved from nearby Rutgers Park to Seward Park in 1936. It was the gift of Jacob H. Schiff, a banker and philanthropist, to the people of the Lower East Side. It is in a sad state. The Friends of Seward Park advocate its restoration.
