A lawyer with nearly 30 years’ experience, Nancy L. Kourland is a Chapter 11 bankruptcy litigator in New York City. As a longtime New Yorker, Nancy L. Kourland supports a number of city groups and nonprofits, including the Central Park Conservancy.

The Central Park Conservancy is a nonprofit created in 1980 by residents who were concerned about the care and improvement of Central Park, an 843-acre urban park on the island of Manhattan. After witnessing two decades of steady decline, the first thing the Central Park Conservancy did was raise money from city residents, businesses, and foundations to go forward with projects aimed at the upkeep, maintenance, renovations, and restorations of the park facilities.

Today, Central Park is one of the most frequented parks in the United States. It’s also a highly popular setting for paintings, movies, television shows, and novels. Lined with public art, the park features walking and biking trails, gardens, a castle, and a carousel. Also home to the Central Park Zoo and the Central Park Ice Skating Rink, the park plays host to concerts and many more programs aimed at children, families, and adults. The Central Park Conservancy maintains the world-class beauty and history this park brings for the millions of the people who visit each year.
