The Conservancy Garden is a 6 acre formal garden. The entrance is on 5th Ave between 104th and 105th street. The main entrance to the garden is through the Vanderbilt Gate which came from the Vanderbilt Mansion.

The northern part of the garden is in a French style. At its center is wonder fountain - Three Dancing Maidens by Walter Shott. This lovely sculpture catches young women in joyful action.
One of the things that I really like about the Conservancy Gardens is that it is a really great place to come and relax. It has many nooks and crannies to sit, relax and maybe read a book.
As I said in an earlier post - Central Park is one of my favorite places. It is place to come whatever mood you are in. And it is full of surprises if you take the time to explore.
