“a breathtaking six acres”
Conservatory Garden began as a large, E-shaped greenhouse, or conservatory in 1898. It featured an indoor winter garden of exotic tropical plants and outdoor decorative Victorian flowerbeds. In 1937, the deteriorating structure was demolished and this six-acre formal garden was designed in its place. If you're looking for a great place to take a date, this is the place for you.
From stunning flower gardens to grand fountains, experience a bit of Europe in the heart of New York City when you visit the Conservatory Garden. With garden styles featuring inspiration from France, Italy and England, bask in brightly colored flowers and perfectly manicured hedges in this serene oasis.
While many visit the Conservatory Garden for peace and quiet, it’s not uncommon for wedding pictures and engagement shoots to happen here. If you’re looking for the perfect backdrop, I recommend bringing your camera for a little photo session.
We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Central Park!
