The Attractions Of Central Park

The Great Lawn: C80-84

At the center of Central Park from 80th to 86th Street is a great 13-acre oval lawn with a carpet of lush Kentucky Bluegrass and eight ballfields.
Aside from its ballfields and free concerts given by the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera the Great Lawn is a spectacular place for reading and contemplation.
With the distant sounds of players in the field, birds hovering overhead and the warming sunlight of a fine spring day it is the perfect spot to lounge with a good book or a picnic lunch.
Home to many blooming trees, Hawthorn, Crabapple, and Kwanzan and Yoshino Cherry, the Great Lawn effuses color as the different species flourish with their fragrant blossoms.
