Central Park Conservancy Gardens
Playing guitar while Andrew “popped” the question! A beautiful spot along 5th Ave. at E. 101 St.
The Conservatory Garden is divided into three smaller gardens, each with a distinct style: Italian, French and English. The Garden’s main entrance is through the Vanderbilt Gate, on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets. This magnificent iron gate, made in Paris in 1894, originally stood before the Vanderbilt mansion at Fifth Avenue and 58th Street.
To the south is the very intimate English-style garden. At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnah’s lovely Burnett memorial fountain, a tribute to Frances Hodgson Burnett, the author of the children’s classic, The Secret Garden. The children — a girl and a boy, thought to depict Mary and Dickon — stand at one end of a small water lily pool. Concentric rings of flower beds surround the pool. There are five mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennial plants, and five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs that are followed by annual flower displays. A slope of woodland plants lines the western edge of this garden.
