This is near 105th St. Went there in the spring and was able to see a wonderful assortment of flowers and beautiful arrangements of the shrubbery. It is not too big but you could spend a peaceful half hour to whatever you want and enjoy...More

I came earlier in the morning before it got too crowded. It is beautiful, and quiet! This was my favourite place in the city.

The garden was smaller than I expected. It was nice to walk through but at this time of year most of the flowers weren’t in bloom- I’m sure it would be stunning at other times of the year.

It's sure a nice little place to visit inside the Central Park. Very beautiful garden with fountains. Worth a visit.

This garden, part of Central Park transports you to Europe. It's exquisite, filled with flowers and the most beautiful American sculptures.

The aroma of the many flowers that seem to bloom here year-round is one of the great attractions of Central Park.

We really enjoyed this garden with nice walking paths. There were many spring-flowering shrubs and flowers while we visited. It's a little gem in Central Park.

And watch out for the raccoons hiding in the overgrowth in the balcony! And look at the floors, which show the names of the first states that joined the union

Mid April is a little early for things in bloom. But it is still very pretty nevertheless. It’s located in the north east part of the park. It is closed part of Wednesday mornings for maintenance.
