New York Conservatory Garden
In Central Park is the New York Conservatory Garden - six acres of tranquility and order. The gardens are divided into three styles: French, Italian, and English. The centerpiece of the French garden is the Three Dancing Maidens sculpture, which is surrounded by 20,000 tulips in the spring and 2,000 chrysanthemums in the autumn. The Italian garden features a walkway shaded by pink and white crabapples and a twelve foot jet fountain. Fans of Frances Hodgson Burnett will delight in the English garden's fountain, which features a boy playing the pipes and a girl offering water to the birds.
