It’s hard not to love Madison Square Park. Not only is it home to the Shake Shack flagship (and situated next to foodie favorite Eataly), but it also strikes a delicate balance between children’s playground and mom paradise. Shaded benches offer a perfect view of the playground and rotating exhibitions of contemporary art offer something besides the swing set to admire. The conservancy also has an extensive children’s program—Mad. Sq. Kids—that hosts festivals, concerts, and art series. Check the park’s website for dates and details.
