In September 2015 the Central Park Conservancy completed a major restoration of the northern half of Grand Army Plaza, including a conservation and regilding of the Sherman monument. The Conservancy also restored the plaza based on its historic 1916 design, including installing a double row of London plane trees, new benches, lamps, and paving stones.
