Riverside Park's Weed-Munching Goats Are Coming Back—This Time to Harlem


Riverside Park's Weed-Munching Goats Are Coming Back—This Time to Harlem

Riverside Park's weed-munching goats are returning for their fifth season, and this time they're coming to Harlem.


The new herd will be moving to their new summer home at W 143rd Street, where they'll be tackling the area's invasive plants just like they did in their old spot at 120th Street.


But before they get to work, the Riverside Park Conservancy is hosting a free celebration on Friday, July 19 (originally scheduled for July 12) from 11am-2pm on the lawn just north of the Ten Mile River Playground at 151st Street.


The festival will kick off with a "ribbon chewing" ceremony and include light refreshments, local vendors, live music, educational activities, plus new Goatham merchandise.


Riverside Park's Weed-Munching Goats Are Back for a Third Summer

The "Goatham Class of 2024" includes seven goats: Charlise, Chico, Godiva, Mallomar, Paris, Romeo and Turbo. As in previous years, fans will be able to vote for their favorite G.O.A.T.


The herd is scheduled to remain in the park until September.
