Goats in Riverside Park too efficient — have left, but will return later this summer

If you’d been planning a visit to watch our goat lawnmowers, you’ve missed your chance for now. Looks like they loved it there. Hope they’ll be back.

Goodbye Goats (For Now); We Hardly Knew Ewe!

The goats of Riverside Park have chomped through expectations, mowing down the weeds on a hill between 119th and 125th Streets since they arrived on May 21. So they’ve been sent home to Rhinebeck for a month or so.

The goats became mini-celebrities since their arrival, and people tell us they like to drop by just to watch what the animals are up to. The Riverside Park Conservancy says they expect some goats to return in the middle of next month, so try not to get too emotional. It’s not so baaaaaaaaaaad.
