  • Another very beautiful garden within Central Park. The garden itself has wonderful wooden benches to rest on and enjoy the flowers. Great for photos. Throughout the garden that is said to include all the plants mentioned in Shakespeare's plays, you'll find small plaques with quotes from the play. Next to the garden is also the Swedish Theater, Marionette House where you can watch some excellent children's stories brought to life...so make sure to take the little ones. There's also the whispering bench higher up in the garden that's a little secluded. Whisper at one end while having someone else listen in on the other side
  • Beautiful area to walk through. You can see people painting along the sides of the water. Very peaceful and a great place for morning walk. if you're walking through the summer I recommend going early it does get very warm.
