Become a Washington Square Park Docent

Love Washington Square Park? Looking for a unique volunteer opportunity?

The Washington Square Park Conservancy (WSPC) is accepting new volunteers into its Greeter-Guide Program, a volunteer experience in which you will interact with Park users, helping them learn about the exciting horticulture, history, events, and culture that the Park has to offer. From our resident hawks to the coveted Arch, the Park has many stories to be told.

The WSPC is looking for new volunteers to participate in service to the Park. Volunteers accepted into the program will participate in an extensive orientation including lectures, tours, and practice sessions. Once complete, volunteers may also train to lead tours of the Park.

Interested? Please download the application here.

Applications are due March 19th.

Visit the WSPC volunteer page to learn more about the application process and requirements. You can also attend an information session about the program and other volunteer opportunities on Tuesday, March 6th. More information here.

    I have run a "Marc's Village Walk" history tour of Greenwich Village. No celebrities mentioned other than the artists, writers and historical figures who lived here. I end the tour at Washington Sq. park, Macdougal St. then Minneta Lane. I tell of the early history when Native people lived there and fished in Minnet brook before they were evicted by the Dutch. The Stanford White designed arch and Judson Memorial. Then the marches I and others took part in, in 1961 when the Parks Dept. wanted to stop music in the park.
