Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I love to come here as a refuge for the busy city and the best time here is spring. The well maintained flower beds,specimen trees and shrubs snd well maintained walks make this a great spot to relax and recharge. Many young families pushing carriages, school children after their hours snd bus loads of visitors flock here. Great spot to picnic or just hang out or stroll with loved ones 0 seconds Molly one of the best spots to visit located at 105 street and fifth avenue with the opening at the Vanderbilt gate.

It was quiet and peaceful but a bit underwhelming. The south end around Burnett Fountain was nice but the rest of the garden seemed underdeveloped. Maybe nicer later in Spring and early Summer. I was there in mid-April.

This was my first visit. It is very easy to find and enter. Plenty of pathways and a wide variety of trees, bushes and flowering plants. Benches can be found throughout, and there is even a restroom. I only wish there were identifying stakes.

Lovely and well-maintained gardens offering some lovely views.

As of June, 2023, only part of the gardens are open...the other part is under construction.

Easy access from the Fifth Avenue gate (Vanderbilt Gate) at 105th street. Street parking in the area easier on weekends, particularly on Sundays.

The gardens have a quiet elegance to them in the winter months when nothing is growing but still you can walk around and see all the bushes and statuary. The gardens are under renovation but in the winter months there is nothing to see on that side of the park.

Still is it nice to walk around the shrubbery and see the mazes of the gardens. There are still people walking around admiring the lawns and trees and taking pictures.

Lovely small garden in the upper section of central park. Theres some nice steps you can walk up and over with a view of the fountain which is situated in the middle of the garden and they have restrooms you can use which are relatively well looked after for park toilets. The garden is very well kept and looked after, they were gardening whilst we were there.

I went to the Central Park Conservatory for the first time since the pandemic and the core of the gardens are under renovation.

You can still walk around the perimeters of the gardens and see the trees and lawn. The fountain off to the side surrounding by those gardens was still open and it was nice to walk around. The flowers were in full bloom.

It will be nice to see the end results with the gardens when it is finished.

I visited the Conservatory Garden in Central Park in December 2021 after visiting the Museum of the City of New York. It is located near 5th Avenue and 105th Street. There is a Central Garden, North Garden and South Garden. The hedge rows are beautiful. The North Garden and the South Garden had fountains. I can imagine that it is very beautiful in the spring.

The Conservatory Garden, located in Central Park, is undoubtedly a beautiful and peaceful oasis in the heart of a bustling metropolis.



Both my wife and I consider the garden among our top ten attraction to visit in Manhattan, NY. Our personal favorite items in the garden are the “Untermyer Fountain”, which was donated by the family of Samuel Untermeyer, a prominent 20th Century attorney, and the “Three Dancing Maidens” designed by Walter Schott, a German sculptor.



The Conservatory Garden is a great place to have engagement or wedding photos or a great place to visit and sightsee alongside family and loved ones!!!

Highly recommend seeing this, and the adjacent garden.
I've visited NYC for 60 years, and only 2 years ago did a granddaughter lead me here. Quiet. Beautiful. Restrooms available.
