1. Central Park, The Harlem Meer
Central Park North/West 110th Street from Malcolm X Boulevard east to Fifth Avenue
This beautiful pond was refurbished by the Central Park Conservancy in 1993. The site of a Parks-sponsored fishing tournament each summer, it is a wonderful place to rest and contemplate the beauty of nature in an urban setting. The Meer is home to geese, ducks, swans, the occasional egret, and, of course, fish and frogs. Central Park encompasses 840 acres in which a wide variety of wildlife thrives. For more information, stop by the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center, designed in 1993 by Buttrick, White, Burtis, near Fifth Avenue and Central Park North and ask for a Harlem Meer Walking Tour Guide, available in English and Spanish. The Center is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. April to October, and until 4:00 p.m. November to March.
