My granddaughters always loved the movie Balto, watched it over and over again. And so, when we went to the Central Park Zoo last week as part of a 5 day trip to Manhattan, I reminded them that the statue would be close by. Here...More

The Balto Statue is located within Central Park and is pretty easy to find with the help of most online maps. It's a nice tribute to a Siberian Husky that trekked for hundreds of miles in freezing temperatures to deliver the diphtheria vaccine to fight...More

My grandaughter loved the Balto Statue. It is pretty large and sits on a small hill of rocks that the kids can climb on. Lots of kids were getting their photos taken.

The memorial is really cool, but there are so many people trying to get a picture, so it’s every man for himself.

It is a nice place to stop if you are strolling in Central Park. If you are a big fan of the story of Balto (or the film), then it is pretty cool to see. It was not in a busier area of the park...More
