The garden is at the most northeastern end of the park and too easy to miss. This section of the park is beautiful and not to be missed!

Timing is everything, but on a beautiful Fall day, the Untmyer garden was radiant! Well-worth a walk-thru.

This garden has several areas where beautiful flowers are displayed. It is best enjoyed in May when there is a really spectacular display of tulips.

This is definitely one of the best spots in Central Park, and the gardens in themselves are really nice, even breathtaking. It was my first time here, and did not even realize this gem existed inside of Central Park. Many were relaxing, some were taking...More

Really nice area in the park that is definitely worth checking out. Great flowers and landscaping throughout. There was a lot of wedding photos going on there since the flora is in abundance everywhere. A "must see" if you're checking out the museums in the...More

I came here in April. Everything was beginning to bloom and the beauty, and serenty of the garden was magnificent. Best time to come here in the Spring. The only downside is that the garden is located on 106th street in Harlem.

I have been in the Gardens many many times and I have never seen dogs there. I don’t know if that is coincidence or if that is a rule. I would not bring the dog in there… People are in there for the peace and beauty. It... More

Agree with the above. Be aware that the Conservatory Garden is rather small and can be seen in less than an hour. If you wish for a longer excursion, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a true oasis of quiet beauty away from... More

There are still flowers in bloom in the park. It may not be like the Spring or Summer but the Gardens run seasonally. So expect to see Fall flowers in the Garden beautifully laid out and well maintained. The volunteers who... More

Lunch by the Frick (1 Replies)
I am planning a visit to Manhattan on Sunday April 13. We're thinking about starting the day at the Conservatory Garden at 5th & 105th (we are staying in Queens and may drive in - I'm thinking parking will be similar to what I found on the UWS - not too tough to find). We'll then work our way through Central Park on our way to the Guggenheim (figure that's a pretty quick stop) and get down to the Frick before the "pay what you wish" expires at 1. Any must see's on the walk...More

Eat Madison - 939 Madison Avenue (between 74th and 75th) (212) 988-4506 or Three Guys Restaurant - between 75 and 76th - this is more of a diner where you will be able to get a burger and fries.

In Bloom in April? (2 Replies)
I know it has been a mild winter & Spring flowers bloomed way ahead of time this year. We will be in NYC starting April 18th. We were especially looking forward to visiting the NY Botanic Garden, and teh Conservatory Garden in Central Park, etc. Just curious as to how long Spring Flowers last? (we have nothing like this where we live) I wonder if we will be too late to see flowers in bloom by the time our trip comes round? Also, if anyone has suggestions for other "garden sites, please...More

The blooms are coming out early this year for sure--- make sure to make your way to Brooklyn Botanical Garden for a real show. You can also consult the Central park Conservancy and they can give you the best places to visit the park during your stay based on this year's planting schedule. It really does make a difference. We loved the conservatory Gardens and considered it for my daughter's June wedding when she got married until we checked and found out that it was in between their planting...More

HI, JESS ~ just a couple of comments... I think you'll need to scale back your expectations of how much ground you're going to cover in the 3 hours you've allocated for shopping Friday morning; you'd be hardpressed to even do a quick walk by Fifth & Madison Avenues' fabled stores & boutiques (if those are what the reference to 5th Avenue means), through Times Square AND Soho & Union Square (closest landmark to ABC Carpet & Home) in that amount of time. How about saving...More
