UPDATE 3:00 pm: Riverside Park is also reopening on Saturday, and the Riverside Park Fund is looking for volunteers who want to help at several cleanup sites over the weekend.
Just got this note from the Central Park Conservancy:
After several long days of hard work by Conservancy staff, Central Park will be open again tomorrow at 8:00 am. Although some landscapes remain closed for continued work, we welcome the public to enjoy the Park again.
There are over 550 trees destroyed or damaged in the Park due to Hurricane Sandy. Find out more about the damage and see photos of our cleanup work on our website. Get the latest updates on Central Park by following us on Facebook and Twitter.
We’re able to care for the Park thanks to the support of our members. Join us today and support your Park!
