Central Park’s Conservatory Gardens
May 19, 2019
The northern end of Central Park is a hidden gem. That’s where we are headed for SSCC’s May trip.
First stop the entrance to the Park at 105th and 5th on the east side. It is here we will meet at the front of the
Vanderbilt Gate. This magnificent iron gate was made in Paris in 1894. Walking through the Gate we’ll
walk into the Conservatory Gardens, one of the nicest sections of the Park. The six-acre formal Gardens
is divided into three smaller Gardens: Italian, French and English. In spring the Gardens offers a variety of
colorful flowers. In addition, there are two special fountains on opposite sides of the Gardens.
Throughout the area there are many benches where you can take a break. They are good locations for
both people and dog watching.
Further north we’ll come across the Harlem Meer. On the other side is the Charles Dana Discovery Center.
After meandering around the Meer we can explore the shaded North Woods.
So please join us May 19th, 10:00 a.m. at the Vanderbilt entrance Gate. Street parking is available nearby.
