This is one of the most amazing places in Central Park. But because of it's location many people don't know about it- even New Yorkers. It has an amazing selection of flowers year round, and is quiet, restful, and a great place to visit. Best of all it's free.

Central Park is undeniably beautiful, but the Conservatory Gardens was a pleasant surprise. My wife and I were checking out the museums on 5th Avenue and happened upon this hidden gem. The manicured beds and lovely fountains provide the perfect setting to enjoy a beautiful spring day.

In front of the beautiful gardens there is a beautiful iron gate that came from an old Vanderbilt mansion. There is a French, English and Italian garden. Check the Central Park website as they offer free tours of the gardens. The lilacs, crabapple trees and the wisteria was in full bloom along with the tulips. The fountains were beautiful with...

If you have kids - it photo op galore especially the last week in April when all the daffodils and tulips are within smelling distance of the 4 and under set. "Did you smell the flowers?" click!

Beautiful garden, hidden gem. Somewhat out of the way - uptown - it almost seem undiscovered. So not too crowded, just filled with nature at its best. Manicured gardens in different styles, French, Italian, English for everybody to enjoy. The entrance at 5th ave - is a large beautiful iron French gate. Brides limos show up on the weekend -...

What is the Life, if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare! This is the sentiment that comes to mind when you are in this gorgeous, unspoilt natural garden. No wonder you see so many artists sitting at their easels there painting the scenery.

This is one of the loveliest spots in the park. It is well maintained in all seasons, but the spring is simply spectacular! And there is a bathroom - a real, free, usually clean, public bathroom!

Fifth Avenue and 107th Street. A comfortable place to sit or stroll. I'd much rather go there than the High Line. It's down-to-earth. And there's nobody there.
