Conservatory Garden: E105 - The North Garden
North of the Vanderbilt Gate
in Central Park is a classical French garden.
At the center of the large oval in which it resides is a fountain pool with "Three Dancing Maidens," sculpted by Walter Schott.
Surrounding the Untermeyer Fountain
, as it is known, are concentric geometric beds of flowers, which offer the most extraordinary show of floral excellence.
The spring and late summer offer the most magnificent displays consisting of 20,000 tulips
in the spring and 2,000 Korean chrysanthemums
in the fall.
