The Pool, of all the natural environments
of Central Park, seems to be the most pristine.
With its drooping willows reflected in the
algae green waters it truly seems like a
setting from another place. A secluded
grotto formed from stacked boulders is the
water source for this idyllic setting.
A favorite haunt of the Great Egret,
watchers are attracted to the area in search
of many migratory species.
Glowing in autumn from the burst of color
offered by its red maples, Osage
hickory and American sycamore
it is a truly an enchanting spectacle. Far
from the route of most Park visitors, the
Pool remains a quiet and tranquil place to
reflect on the glories of nature.
