Central Park Conservatory Garden Tours

Central Park Conservatory Garden
Located inside New York’s iconic Central Park, the Central Park Conservatory Garden provides a lush escape from the city's bustling streets. The European-styled, manicured gardens—replete with seasonal flower beds, woodland plants, and stone walking paths—are dotted with fountains, sculptures, and benches perfect for sipping a coffee and soaking up the sun.

The Basics
The only formal garden in Central Park, the Conservatory Garden comprises 6 acres (2.4 hectares) of carefully maintained grounds covered with flowers, trees, and shrubs. The space consists of three distinctly styled areas, including an English-, Italian-, and French-influenced garden. 

To fully experience the Conservatory and learn a bit about its history, consider booking a Central Park walking or photography tour. Most tours stop by the park’s most important sights, including the manicured expanse of the Conservatory Garden.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Conservatory Garden is a must for nature lovers, gardeners, and those seeking a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • The Conservatory Garden is a designated Quiet Zone, so it’s the perfect place for a peaceful rest. 
  • Consider visiting the seasonal floral displays—enjoy blooming tulips in spring, and experience flowering Korean chrysanthemums in autumn.
  • The garden is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The garden’s main entrance—the historical Vanderbilt Gate—is on Fifth Avenue between 104th and 105th streets, and is easily accessible by subway and bus. Take the 6 train to 103 Street and walk west. Alternatively, ride the M1, M2, M3, or M4 bus to the garden. 

When to Get There
The Conservatory Garden is open—and lovely—year-round from 8am to dusk. A sunny afternoon is best, ideally with flowers in bloom, though the winter months imbue the park with a unique charm under a layer of snow. The garden hosts many weddings in peak season, so expect crowds during summer weekends. Consider a midday weekday stroll, for the most contemplative experience.

Top Museums near the Garden
New York's Museum Mile is just a stone's throw from the Conservatory Garden. Directly across from the garden's Vanderbilt Gate, you'll find El Museo del Barrio, which features primarily Latin American art. Walk just a few blocks down Fifth Avenue and you'll hit the Museum of the City of New York, the Jewish Museum, Guggenheim Museum, and Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum.
Address: 5th Ave and 105th St., New York City, New York 10029, USA
