The mission of the Central Park Conservancy, a private non-profit, is to restore, manage, and enhance Central Park, in partnership with the public.
One of my five NY preferite places. Stunning by any side, not only the fountain but all the terrace. Underpass is great, too, and often there're artists exploiting its peculiar acoustics.
Walk to the edge by the water, on the other side of the walls there are steps into the water that you can sit on and watch the boaters on the lake.
Breathtaking views and great people watching
sing all your favorite songs from enchanted movie here, take pics or see a proposal, face back the fountain, throw a penny over your shoulder, clap 3 times & say New York! You'll return here someday!
The view is great

June-Watch baby snapping turtles (& mamas) swimming about searching for food. & Around noon, sunning on the rock outcropping along the northern end of the pond. But don't touch, they bite pretty hard.
Don't let mike in the fountain

Truly a beautiful sight! One of the best scenic places to go.
Smells like horse pee up top :-)
Great place to hang out and relax in the park. Sit down with a good friend, catch up, and take a ton of pictures!
Visit before 4:30 pm in winter.
Another obvious landmark - but the terrace and fountain worth checking out
Designed by Emma Stebbins and dedicated in 1873, this fountain was the only sculpture commissioned as part of Central Park’s original design. Its official name is “Angel of the Waters.”
Yes the fountain is nice and the ceiling is amazing, but let's not forget the FRESCOES!
Tons of films filmed here, my favourite being Angels in America. This is a great place to sit and relax in the middle of your park exploration!
Great for people watching and listening to street performers.
Best part of park, takes you away from the craziness of the city.
Frederick Law Olmsted commissioned a memorial to the union naval dead in 1865. The angel of the waters, from the gospel of Saint John, rises from the top -- a symbol of the healing power of nature.
Fountain's all dried up now, usually much prettier when filled, I suggest during summer

Bridal parties getting their photos taken, outdoor fitness bootcamps and street performers all gather in one place – it’s one of our favorite places to people watch.
Early morning is my favorite time here ~ not as crowded as afternoon. Don't forget to stop by the boathouse for a coffee!
Come here on Saturday to here the whole Cosby gang sing in glorious harmony.
A beautiful fountain near a beautiful underpass, a lake with rowboats & street performers! A great central meeting place as it's close to everything else in Central Park.
