The Conservatory Garden is Central Park's six-acre formal garden.
It 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.
The Italianate center garden is composed of a large lawn surrounded by hedges and is bordered by two exquisite spring-blooming pink and white crabapple trees.
A 12-foot high jet fountain plays on the western end of the lawn, backed by tiered hedges and stairs that lead up to a wisteria pergola.
On the walkway under the pergola are medallions inscribed with the names of the original 13 states.
spectacular seasonal displays of spring tulips, all within an ellipse of Japanese holly.
In the center is the charming Three Dancing Maidens fountain by German sculptor, Walter Schott.
To the south is the very intimate English-style garden.
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.
At the center is sculptor Bessie Potter Vonnoh's lovely Frances Hodgeson Burnett Memorial Fountain, a tribute to the author of the children's book, The Secret Garden.
The children — a girl and a boy, said to depict Mary and Dickon, the main characters from the classic — stand at one end of a small water lily pool.
The Conservatory Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and offers a calm and colorful setting for a leisurely stroll, and intimate wedding, or an escape with a good book.
For many years the garden was tended by volunteers from the Garden Club of America and in 1983 it was restored by the Central Park Conservancy.

Author Paul Parkinson of his new book: Unselfish – Love Thy Neighbor As Thy Selfie.
Pauls the journey that cultivated this collection of 99 stories and full color photos of selfless people celebrates acts of kindness and extraordinary sacrifices of regular people and celebrities.
From high school football players helping a special needs girl fit in, to a police officer feeding a hitchhiker and her dog, to a Hollywood producer leaving behind a 7-figure job to help children in Cambodia, the true stories in this book will restore your faith in humanity. And maybe, just maybe, will inspire thousands of people to turn their cameras the other way and look for someone they can help.
It is no coincidence that Unselfish releases the same day as Kim Kardashian’s book, Selfish. Paul Parkinson, the author of Unselfish, believes this project is an important antithesis. “We plan to release Unselfish the same day,” says Parkinson, whose last project was Nowhere Safe, a film about cyberbullying. “We feel there needs to be a counterbalance. This is not a campaign against any individual or group of individuals. It is a campaign to address the growing culture of selfishness.”
Go to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/unselfishstories) to read additional stories of unselfishness. You can make posts there as well. Keep sharing! #UnselfishStories
We're gifting 5 copies of this wonderful book within 24 hours of the debut of this show. Send ann e-mail to @SavvyCentralRadio@gmail.com and type: UnselfishStories in the subject line for your FREE copy of:"Unselfish"
