    A good place to get away from It All, without really leaving It All. Turtle-watching at Turtle Pond is relaxing and will bring out the "wildlife biologist" in anyone.

    If you can't get enough of the turtle in the big pond, there are more here. How can you not like a turtle?

    Comparative solitude close to the craziness of the Great Lawn. And turtles.

    Grab a hot dog from the cart then park your ass on the grass & take a well-deserved snooze. The end! #turtsbonus
