The Central Park Wildlife Center has more than a fabulous collection of exotic animals to offer its visitors. It is also the home of one of Central Park's best kept secrets, the Central Garden .
In the four corners of the central courtyard surrounding the sea lion pool is a spacious
perennial garden that truly defines the area with its seasonal planting.
With its crabapple trees in the spring to black-eyed susans in the summer the garden is rich with color and alive with the butterflies and bees that zero in on the pollen giving flowers.
