Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 18, 2015: The Conservancy Gardens NYC

IMG_0105

 

Up near the Northern end of Central Park is an oft forgotten gem - The Conservancy Gardens.  These 3 gardens are 6 acres of formality in what is often an area of the park that has been allowed to grow close to natural.

 

The Gardens include English, Italian and French styles, complete with flower beds and fountains. It is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. Shady spots to sit, read, eat or just escape.

Quite a surprise! I can't believe, for all the time I've spent in New York parks, that I completely missed these. Thanks for the introduction! 

 

Do you know who the sculptor was? I'm reminded a bit of Carl Milles.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
