  • Another very beautiful garden within Central Park. The garden itself has wonderful wooden benches to rest on and enjoy the flowers. Great for photos.

  • Beautiful area to walk through. You can see people painting along the sides of the water. Very peaceful and a great place for morning walk. if you're walking through the summer I recommend going early it does get very warm.
