Rating: 4.5/5 ZOZI RATING

Official Central Park Tours highlight the amazing history behind this masterpiece. Spectacular popular sights that you view on guided or self-guided walking tours include:

Great Lawn

This luxurious well-maintained green area was originally a reservoir completed in 1842. When obsolete, it was drained, filled in, opened in 1937, and restored in 1997.

Wollman Skating Rink

New Yorkers demanded a place for the new sport of ice skating.. Kate Wollman donated the money in 1950, and, in the 1980s, the rink was reconstructed by the City and Donald Trump.

Conservatory Garden

The first formal garden appeared in 1898 with a large greenhouse featuring indoor tropical plants and outdoor decorative flowerbeds. The greenhouse was demolished in 1937 and replaced by a six-acre garden with the famous Three Dancing Maidens fountain.

Belvedere Castle

This fanciful observation tower was created in 1867. In 1919 the United States Weather Bureau set up offices there, and, in the early 1960s, installed automated meteorological instruments. In 1983 the building was restored and still monitors the City's weather
