    The Belvedere Castle offers visitors exactly what its name implies: "Beautiful View or Beautiful to see." I totally agree!

    It's free! Use the circular mirrors to see if anyone is coming up or down if you are attempting to use the stairs.

  • The Corcoran Group

    Make a point to visit the upper floors of the castle (only accessible by narrow winding stairs) and enjoy the best views of the park from the park. Call ahead to check if they’re open.

    I went there on a hot summer day... BIG MISTAKE! I boiled inside the castle walls but it was worth it when we got to the top because the view was breath taking!

    If you plan on trompin' 'round the Park all day, don't save the steps up to the Castle for your last stop. There's quite a lot of 'em...
