Socrates Sculpture Park is a community engaged New York City waterfront park dedicated to supporting artists in the production and presentation of public art.


The Park is open 365 days a year from 9am — sunset and admission to the Park’s groundsexhibitions, programs, is always FREE. All are welcome!
