The Conservatory Garden is a formal garden near the northeastern corner of Central Park in Upper Manhattan, New York City. Comprising 6 acres (24,000 m2), it is the only formal garden in Central Park. Conservatory Garden takes its name from a conservatory that stood on the site from 1898 to 1935. It is located just west of Fifth Avenue, opposite 104th to 106th Streets.
The park's head gardener, Ignatz Anton Pilát, originally stored plants at the site of Conservatory Garden during the construction of Central Park.: 55–56 At the time, park architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux wanted to landscape most of the northeast corner of Central Park as part of an arboretum, including the site of the current Conservatory Garden and Harlem Meer. However, this proposal was not implemented because of a lack of funds.: 146 Additionally, a formal conservatory had been planned for Conservatory Water, further south in Central Park, but was never built.: 144

One of Central Park most valuable julury located at the very north. It is like European queen inspired gardens and it is one of the rare examples of how u need to be extremely curious to find this place. It's the most biggest secret of the hall park.

I was taking a walk through the park, without any specific destination in mind. I stumbled upon this beautiful garden..it was absolutely beautiful. There are benches in quiet areas that are perfect for meditation. This is a serene gem in northern Central Park.

What a beautiful garden! Probably the nicest garden in the city. Walking around you totally disconnect from the busy surrounding. The flowers, the grass, the walkways are amazing. It's very relaxing. A must visit. Imo.

The atmosphere is peaceful even though it is in the middle of the city. It is a great place to relax, sit down and do nothing or read a good book. Definitely a gem within Central Park.
