This was an amazing find..just a block away from the Museum of the City of NY where we had come from...It's behind large wrought iron gates so not hard to find! such beautifully planted and manicured gardens and lots of benches to stop and rest while you stroll around. Do not miss the bird fountain with the lotus plants, and... More

105th street and 5th Avenue: First, you are surpised by the wrought iron gates. THEN, you look in and you ae transported to another place and time. Walk the path through the large front lawn, then walk and sit among the manicured flora, the ponds, the pools, the fountains, and the stauary of this exquisite formal garden.

In the 80's and 90's, you would avoid this park and this part of Central Park like the plaque. Now completely refurbished and replanted over the last twenty years, this part of the park is a delight to walk around in or just stop and read or have a conversation with a friend when visiting one of the two museums...

We visited the Conservatory Garden while in the area as it was a stop on our hop on-hop off bus tour and it made a lovely change from the other parts of Central Park being much more designed garden-wise. The middle, Italian garden was crisp but a the wisteria wasn't out when we were there so not shown off to... More

The garden layout is wonderful and the setting is luxioious. It is a well worth visit, and is across the street from the Museum of City of NYC, so a package trip is easy

I've performed many weddings in the three separate section of Conservatory Garden in Central Park. Beautiful spots throughout for those quiet intimate moments.

This is a lovely little garden near the top of Central Park near several museums and the Harlem Meer. It's a great place to take a book and read for an hour. Then, take in a museum, walk through a section of Central Park, take a Fifth Avenue bus down to wherever. . . A great place to start the... More

We were 45 seniors touring New York City and stopped here at the conservatory garden at Central Park. I found it a bit disappointing after being at Niagara Falls Canada's Queen Victoria Garden. But nonetheless this is a very pretty garden. We only had time to visit the Dutch, English and Italian Gardens. The Dancing Ladies Statue and fountain was... More
