Central Park settings

I heard about a place in Central Park that I've never been to. It made me realize that I always only go to the same three places when I go to Central Park: The Pond, Sheeps Meadow and Bethesda Terrace. It made me realize that I have a lot more places to see while I'm here! So I decided to finally venture beyond the terrace, up Cedar Hill and into the area where Turtle Pond, Belvedere Castle and the ball fields of the Great Lawn are (and it's a really large lawn!).

This is a great area. It's located I'd say near the 76th or 79th Street entrance from 5th Avenue, but in the center of the park.

  1. I was just here recently, too. Though I've been here before I don't think I quite appreciated it as I did 3 weeks ago. Did you go through Literary Walk? I enjoyed all the musicians there. Would be great photo ops in winter...just an idea.

  2. Wait didn't mean to be anonymous..that's me up there...
