Group of Bears Statue Reviews
This is one of many statues that inhabit the park. Nothing too special. You can't miss it walking south of the Met. more »
Great place to take a pic. It's around the corner from Alice in Wonderland and one of the best statues to take a pic with. Bronze bears and there is a small playground next to the bears. more »
The 'Group of Bears' bronze sculpture just south of the MET at 79th Street and 5th Ave. in the Ruth and Arthur Smadbeck-Heckscher East Playground area is interesting to see before or after visiting the museum. The sculpture is cast of the Paul Manship original bronze from 1932 and was erected here in 1989. It is similar to but more playful than the Manship 1963 bronze cast situated within the MET. The Group of Bears is a child-friendly monument, similar to the nearby Hans Christian Anderson and Alice and Wonderland sculptures. Thus children are welcome to touch and climb upon. There are park benches surrounding the Group of Bears so this can be a good place to take a quick rest of feet while your little ones enjoy the playground and the sculpture. Then move on with other intended sightseeing around Central Park and Museum Mile.
As promised, it is a group of bears.
