“Takes two minutes to see then move on.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Look, I was a Beatles fan but this area of Central Park is cool but you are not going to spend more than a couple of minutes here. Other good stuff right nearby.

“It is still a dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The simple memorial really allows you to think and reflect... It is sort of sad that we still have to dream about peace...It should be a dream come true!

Thiis was our 2nd visit to Strawberry Fields but this time we learnt that Yoko invited countries from all over the world to send plants for Strawberry Fields, there is a plaque stating which countries participated & sent plants.

“perfect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Just a few minutes here and you feel John's presence. A muted memorial to a legend, and a perfect spot to contemplate the man and his music.

“Makes you think”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

A nice simple tribute to John Lennon. Aside from the pesky pedi-cab and tour bus ticket sales people - this spot in Central Park is a great place to pause and reflect. A great musician and human being taken much too early 'Strawberry Fields' pays homage to the man in a manner in which he probably would approve. Give peace a chance.
