Somewhat uninspiring, the surrounding architectural is much more beautiful. I would recommend visiting the park however.

“The fountain seen in many movies”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Great place for taking photographs. The walkway is very interesting especially because there are always several performers or entertainers. One of the many things to see in Central Park.

“Just a fountain but pretty surroundings ”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Went to Central Park after it had snowed and must say this iconic fountain did look very picturesque amongst the snow.
There were a small group of singers close by which made for a very festive visit.

“It's a Fountain”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Beautiful fountain on the edge of Central Park. You will find a lot of tourists here and several performer scattered around the area. You'll definitely recognize the fountain from popular Hollywood films. Check out the Minton Tile Ceiling at the Bethesda Arcade, steps away from the fountain.

“Landmark ”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

This is a beautiful landmark of Central Park. We met some musicians playing underneath the walkway, took photos on the upper level, and enjoyed the entire scene.
