Hi friends, welcome back! Today I’m taking you on part two of my Central Park spring tour featuring the southern half of the park. If you missed part one you can catch up here. The pictures from part one of my tour were taken on April 11th and when I came back for part two on April 21st, I was amazed at how much growth there was in 10 days. The park looked very green like it does all summer!
The pond is a beautiful spot to photograph with the contrast of the skyscrapers in the background. This area is also very popular with the hundreds of turtles that live in the park.
On April 11th I took some pictures of the cherry blossoms near Bow Bridge, and by the time I made it back they were done blooming.
These are from April 21st and you’d think this was a different area of the park.
Bethesda Fountain is turned on for the year and is always a popular spot to sit and take a rest.
Conservatory Water, also known as Model Boat Pond, is a relaxing spot to sit and people watch.
The Mall now offers plenty of shade for the patrons.
Wollman Rink is now home to fourteen pickleball courts, but they’ll cost you $80/hour Monday-Thursday 10am-5pm or $120/ hour during peak time.
I’ll end the tour at the beautiful Gapstow Bridge.
I hope you enjoyed my spring tours of Central Park! It’s always a good day when time is spent in this beautiful park.
