A fun place to explore in Central Park. It is a surprise to find but of course exploring Central Park you will find surprises around every corner and tree! The views are great plus it is also functional - a weather station. It is above the concert area and the fishing lake. You can see turtles laying a long the shore.

It's cool and everything but I wouldn't go just to see it. If you're exploring central park then it's a great photo op.

Went looking for 'Gargamels castle' and
Found a beautiful scenic place in the middle of the park. The gardens around the castle are also very pretty!

Great place to stop by when you are in central park anyway. Wouldnt go there when not somewhere near.
Admission is free.
Great spot to take photos of central park and NY skyline!
