Located at Fifth Avenue and 90th Street,
this entrance to the Upper Reservoir
Jogging Track is the place of choice for
runners to enter Central Park. Adopted as the
official entry point by the New York Road
Runners Club whose offices are located
nearby off Fifth Avenue, it is the place
where runners can find information
regarding runner events at the NYRRC kiosk.
It is also the gateway to the Reservoir
Jogging Track with angled stairs located
on either side of the gilded monument to John Purroy Mitchel.
The overlook above the memorial is the
place where many runners do warm ups
before and stretches after their run.
