Public Support

Since its inception in 1999, the High Line has exemplified what can happen when the public and private sectors work together for a greater civic vision.

Funded Programs

Gardens

In caring for the High Line’s more than 100,000 plantings, our gardeners use ecologically-sensitive methods as part of our commitment to sustainability.

Art

We bring world-class contemporary art to the public, enlivening the park and sparking dynamic, rich conversations with wide audiences.

Teens

Youth from all over New York City gather for cultural and social events, organized and led by our teen staff members.

Public Engagement & Programs

Our hundreds of free public programs invite New Yorkers to connect with neighbors, learn, and enjoy the park.

Families

The High Line is a place to grow (and not just for plants). Children and adults alike enjoy music, dance, storytelling, and other creative experiences.

Accessibility + Language Access

We work hard to keep the High Line open, accessible, and enjoyable for all. Our programs are also accessible, and we encourage people of all abilities to attend.
