I came here in April. Everything was beginning to bloom and the beauty, and serenty of the garden was magnificent. Best time to come here in the Spring. The only downside is that the garden is located on 106th street in Harlem.

This was a lovely garden to pop in and visit. Well curated and close to other sites we were visiting. We weren't here for long but that made it easy to fit in around other plans.

Three formal gardens of a European style are nestled together in upper Central Park just below Harlem Meer. Quite unlike other parts of Central Park. Worth a visit. Then walk to the Meer and visit the Dana Discovery Center.
