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 and the park are currently closed for visitation.  NYC Parks staff continues to be on site to monitor the space.  Sam Lewis, OSH’s director of gardens will continue to prepare the gardens for the upcoming season.  We will not be issuing permits for the space for the time-being as all events have been cancelled.

We will continue to monitor information from NYC Parks, 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 – from a a distance.  Kindest regards from all of us at OSH.
