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

I recently purchased a Great lens for my camera for really good close up photos and was looking for somewhere to use it and stumbled upon this beautiful garden in Central Park! 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.

This is a beautiful garden. It's not very big but if you love gardens then it's worth going to when you're in NY. There's no fee which helps the budget.

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.
