Gorgeous Wedding Venue -- Perhaps NYC's Best!

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

Highly recommend this part of Central park for relaxing. It is not very crowded. Flora in European style.

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...

Beautiful year round but especially April - June. The cherry blossoms, wysteria, tulips, and Quince oh my! 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!
