Hi friends, welcome back! I’ve got the promised part two of my Central Park spring tour today and it might be one of my favorite Central Park posts I’ve done. I walked the entire park on this day from 110th to 59th street staying mostly on the east side, but following the pretty colors. It was the most perfect day you could ask for, 65* and sunny, and I loved every second of my wandering. It’s so hard for me to pick a favorite season in NYC, I was convinced it was fall but after this walk, spring almost took the top spot and I’ll show you why 🙂 (P.S. You can check out part one here)
I started at 110th street entering through Farmers’ Gate and I was immediately drawn to the beautiful blooms. Most people don’t venture this far north in the park so I didn’t have to compete with anyone to get the best angles.
I loved looking over Harleem Meer pond and seeing all of the colors in the background. I even saw some little turtles soaking up the sun and serene surroundings.
I was most excited to see the Conservatory Garden because this is my favorite spot in the park, and it was absolutely magical! The garden is on 106th Street, so most people don’t venture this far up either. I love that it’s not overrun with Instagram photoshoots like Bow Bridge and Gapstow Bridge.
Walking through the magnolia trees it was a bit windy and the petals falling almost looked like snow.
I climbed the steps to get a better view and when I saw all the tulips I was in awe of the beauty. It’s still so hard for me to believe this bit of heaven is right in the middle of NYC and free to enjoy.
The Untermyer Fountain wasn’t turned on yet, but it still looked pretty surrounded by all the daffodils and cherry blossoms.
I continued on to The Pool to check out this peaceful spot.
I walked along the Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis Reservorior to try and get a little shade.
The Obelisk surrounded by spring blooms.
Everyone was out and about enjoying the gorgeous colors!
I stopped by the Central Park Model Yacht Club, I always forget this peaceful spot is here.
The Lake was filled with row boats and happy passengers. This might be my favorite picture of the day.
Bethesda Fountain in all her glory.
Onto the Mall where I took a little break to enjoy the beautiful weather and have a snack. The trees are slowly growing their leaves back.
I finished at The Pond and this area is still blooming, but the Gapstow Bridge is always a stunner. I even found some more turtles getting sun.
I definitely got my dose of vitamin D and steps in on this walk. I hope you enjoyed this spring tour of Central Park as much as I did! As I always say, it’s always a good day when it’s spent in Central Park 🙂
