Group of bears
Apr 2019 • Couples
This is one of many statues that inhabit the park. Nothing too special. You can't miss it walking south of the Met.

The Three Bears
Feb 2019 • Friends
Great place to take a pic. It's around the corner from Alice in Wonderland and one of the best statues to take a pic with. Bronze bears and there is a small playground next to the bears.

Charming statue of bears near Southern end of Metropolitan Museum of Art
Dec 2018 • Couples
The statue entitled "Group of Bears" is located in Central Park just off Fifth Avenue and 79th street very close to the Southern end of the Met Museum. It is surrounded by a circular bench area very convenient for resting a while and viewing the artwork. It looks like children might find climbing on it irresistible.

Statue that is cool but not impressive
May 2018 • Family
This is a cool set of statues but it is not as impressive as others.

It is exactly as it is labeled as a group of bears or 3 bears.

Overall by the time we saw this it just was not as impressive as others we had seen.

Child-friendly sculpture at Central Park just south of the MET
May 2018 • Couples
The 'Group of Bears' bronze sculpture just south of the MET at 79th Street and 5th Ave. in the Ruth and Arthur Smadbeck-Heckscher East Playground area is interesting to see before or after visiting the museum.

The sculpture is cast of the Paul Manship original bronze from 1932 and was erected here in 1989. It is similar to but more playful than the Manship 1963 bronze cast situated within the MET.

The Group of Bears is a child-friendly monument, similar to the nearby Hans Christian Anderson and Alice and Wonderland sculptures. Thus children are welcome to touch and climb upon.

There are park benches surrounding the Group of Bears so this can be a good place to take a quick rest of feet while your little ones enjoy the playground and the sculpture. Then move on with other intended sightseeing around Central Park and Museum Mile.

Bears party
Jun 2017 • Couples
Just off 5th Avenue and 79th street and inside Central Park this group of bronze bears is a real draw for the kids who tend to climb all over them. Excellent to see and the detail in the bronze sculpture is very good.

Children love it here
Nov 2016 • Family
One of several fabulous places kids will always remember. Located just south of the met with easy access to both the park and fifth avenue it is a beacon to families with young children. They love took climb on, kiss. Draw on and talk to these cute bears. Virtually indestructible to normal weather they are magnets to kids young and old. Come and enjoy
