Cedar Hill: E76-79
The sweeping hillside of Cedar Hill lends its pastoral incline to many traditional Central Park activities like reading and sunbathing.
A favorite area for dog owners who meet on the far northern peak of the Hill it provides a wonderful view of the lush green glade below.
True to its name the Hill is the home to many red cedars
that form a line on its crest. It also supports a variety of other evergreens including the Norway spruce and pine. At its southern perimeter lies the
gateway to this valley, the Glade Arch
. Supporting a wide roadway it originally provided carriage traffic with a conduit to Fifth Avenue.
