PRIMA OFFICIAL GAME GUIDE

THE MALL

The Mall was part of Central Park’s original design in 1857,

intended as a promenade for carriage rides and leisurely strolls.

The Mall is an open-air avenue fl anked by a variety of trees,

such as American elms, and statues

of literary fi gures and other heroes.

The Mall is one of the park’s

popular features, as the benches

that line the main walk are often

fi lled with couples, resting joggers,

and people just enjoying the

outdoor paradise tucked inside one

of the world’s busiest cities.

THE CONSERVATORY WATER
The Conservatory Water rests on the east side of the park, providing

an excellent spot to enjoy a good book or watch people play with

model boats. The Conservatory Water sits in the shade of the

Fifth Avenue high-rises, fl anked by numerous statues that draw

the attention of young and old. To the west

of the waters is a playful statue of Hans

Christian Andersen. To the north is an

Alice in Wonderland sculpture that

celebrates several characters from

the book, including the Mad Hatter.

BELVEDERE CASTLE

Built in 1869, Belvedere Castle overlooks Turtle Pond and the Great

Lawn. The castle sits atop Vista Rock, which is the second highest

point in Central Park, and from its tower visitors are treated to an

exquisite view of the surrounding park. The castle was originally

designed as a folly—a fantasy building—but it later took on

practical purposes, serving as a weather station for the United

States Weather Bureau and as a small museum. The castle was

unfortunately one of the park’s features that fell into disrepair,

but an extensive refurbishment allowed it to be reopened to

the public in 1983. It is now a favored attraction of park-goers

for its views and the museum, and it’s also a favorite of bird

watchers who delight in seeing some of Central Park’s natural

occupants, including hawks and osprey.
