Where Brooklyn comes to learn, play, grow and connect

COVID-19 Update

As we monitor the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the health and well-being of our community is our highest priority.

The Old Stone House is currently closed for visitation.  NYC Parks staff continues to be on site and the park and bathrooms are being cleaned daily.  Two OSH staff members will alternate working onsite from 11-4 each day to prepare the gardens and the site for the upcoming season, and to care for the space.  We will not be issuing permits for the space for the time-being as all events have been cancelled.  Additionally, we are:

Requesting that staff and community members stay home if they feel ill and that they do not return to the public space until they are symptom-free.
Conducting an aggressive cleaning schedule in all public areas, including increased cleaning of door handles, stair handrails, exhibition areas and bathroom areas.
Disinfecting and wiping down of all tables and public areas daily.

We will continue to monitor information from the Center for Disease Control, the New York City Department of Health, and the New York State Department of Health, and will provide ongoing updates as necessary.  Please call us at 718-768-3195 or email us at info@theoldstonehouse.org if you have any questions.  We appreciate our community so much, and hope you can take some joy in the gardens at the Old Stone House & Washington Park as they bloom.  Kindest regards from all of us at OSH.
