As you approach the Vanderbilt Gate at
the main entrance of the Conservatory
Garden in Central Park you will readily see
the visible display of water from the
Conservatory Garden Fountain in the
distance beyond a luxuriant lawn.
Located at the heart of this classic Italian
influenced Central Garden, this
unadorned geyser fountain
with its single graceful jet gently sprays
its water high into the air.
It is situated in front of a wisteria covered
wrought iron pergola with rows of hedges
below. During the hot weather months it
provides a refreshing sense of coolness
as visitors walk around the edge of its
curved base catching its delightful mist.
Photographers feature this fountain
as a favorite setting for weddings.
