A lovely peaceful place to visit when you want to get away from the buzz of Manhattan. Our apartment was two streets away from Central Park so visited here several times during our visit. Each time was enjoyable and surprisingly very few people.

I absolutely love the garden. I had been to Central Park many times before I stumbled on this place, and now it is a must for me. I've been 3 times and it is definitely worth the walk north to visit it. If you are worried about the walk, just use it as your starting (or ending) place so you... More

What a great place - a genuinely relaxing and enchanting spot. Worth making the trip across town for and just sit and unwind.

I love the Garden. Most people miss out on the Garden due to its location: 5th Avenue & 103rd - 105th Streets. The tourist tend to stay mostly to the south end of Central Park (Columbus Circle, Bethesda Fountain etc) so it is an extra trip to get to the Garden but it is well worth it. The flowers are... More

A beautiful garden to walk through! It is at the top end of Central Park. A great place to sit and and just enjoy the scenery, read and book, have lunch. It is a quiet zone. No dogs.

The three gardens are beyond lovely. Quiet, beautiful and utterly serene. How they manage to keep them looking so good without 24 hour a day care is astonishing. The arrangement and variety of plants is fantastic. No visit to NYC should miss this spot as its beauty is simply unsurpassed. Be sure to be on the lookout for birds as... More

If you get a chance, stop into this beautiful oasis in NYC. It's free, quiet, green, and a cool break from the heat. When we were there, there was a wedding going on. We walked the shaded paths, gazed at the fountains, even saw a raccoon sleeping in an arbor! He must have liked it too! Sunny and shady, a... More

This garden was recommended to me by a true blue New Yorker as one of their favourite spots in the city ....and i now know why. The sun was shining the birds were singing and the atmosphere in the garden early in the morning was just beautiful. There were birdwatchers everywhere and i overheard the word migration a few times... More

Every visitor to NYC has to visit the Conservatory Gardens of Central Park, Located at 105th Street and 5th Avenue this has to be one of the most beautiful spots in Manhattan. Best time to visit is between April and October although beauty can be found in the winter months as well. Be sure to visit the three fountains located... More
