But these aren’t normal times, so the gates of the garden have had to be locked and the only people who can go inside these days are four members of the Board.

In normal times, this is definitely a community garden and is open to all. But these aren’t normal times, so the gates of the garden have had to be locked and the only people who can go inside these days are four members of the Board.

The West 89th Street half of the garden was created in 1987 by a landscape architect who designed benches and paths and leveled flower beds with plantings that reflect the seasons. The West 90th half is reserved for West Siders who want to tend their own plots.

Spring is probably the garden’s most anticipated time, a time when the 15,000 or so tulips burst into flower in an eye-popping display of color that makes it impossible for passers-by not to stop and stare. The group’s website has some gorgeous photos of the garden, well worth a look.

Besides being beautiful to look at, the garden organizes a number of warm-weather events, also open to all. Judith Robinson, president of the garden’s board, said that as of now, it is impossible to know what, if any, of these will take place this season.

Their tulip festival couldn’t happen, the live music concerts scheduled for May and June have been cancelled, and whether the July potluck and barbecue and Shakespeare series can stay on the calendar is all up in the air. Right now, Robinson says that “everything needs to be reimagined.”
