About GreenUtica

Our parks are for everyone to enjoy and provide a gathering place for free recreation, health, and entertainment. By having green and clean spaces readily accessible, the potential health and wellness benefits to us as individuals, families, and communities are immeasurable.

The Proctor family left Utica with quite a legacy — nearly 600 acres of parks featuring designs from famed architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. that are rich in history, topography, and green spaces full of hiking trails and historical landmarks.

GreenUtica is a nonprofit organization originally founded in June of 2002 as the ​Central New York Conservancy (CNYC). In 2023, the Conservancy rebranded as GreenUtica to better align with its mission to develop programs and events that enable us to lead the preservation and beautification of Utica’s parks and natural environment to enhance quality of life.
