On the top of a sloped knoll leading to the Conservatory Water, stands the bronze statue of The Pilgrim, a leading resident of Central Park.
This hill is named Pilgrim Hill after the symbolic figure who commemorates the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock. Mounted on a pedestal styled by Richard Morris Hunt, he is shown in his customary attire with a rifle by his side.
