This is on the east side of the park and at about 104th St. so it is a long walk from some places, but it is peaceful and pretty. Many flowers were blooming, and it was a nice place to visit. We enjoy walking and there are good paths to get there.

What a beautiful, quiet oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located just below the northeast corner of Central Park, it features 3 formal gardens with plants and blooming flowers, trees and fountains. It is a great place to visit if you are looking for a green space and to escape the crowds of the midtown and downtown... More

What a lovely garden we discovered. This is a great place to reflect and have quiet solitude as there are no children and is a quiet zone. Lovely place to read a good book as well. The garden is divided into three parts. A beautiful fountain anchors the middle section. Loaded with various perennials and annuals. A true gem from... More

I have been to the Conservatory Garden every season of the year, and have always loved it. Most recently, I visited there with my wife in the early autumn, and it was still lush and green. The French Garden with its sculpted hedges and sculptures is my favorite, but I also love the variety and wildness of the English Garden.

All my life I've seen Central Park in movies and on tv. None compared to the actual beauty that lies within. I could've spent days exploring. Around each turn lay another paradise. There could be more drinking fountains though, it was 90º and my bottle of water didn't last very long at all. Next time I'll be better prepared. Do... More

From the majestic French gate to the beautiful, well kept lawn that greets visitors, it was a very inviting sight. There were flowers everywhere, fountains, shaded areas with... More

I spent about an hour walking through this lovely garden in Central Park. The entrance is on Fifth Avenue at about 105th Street. Roses, peonies, hosta, and allium were in bloom.

The Conservatory Garden has beautiful trees, plants and flowers. Sit on a shaded bench and gaze at the scenic views. Admire the fountains and sculptures. Stroll along the paths of this elegantly restored garden. Have a relaxing visit in the only formal garden in Central Park.
