Belvedere Castle in Central Park

Belvedere Castle in Central Park

Location :40.779083, -73.968652

One of the most enchanting spectacles in Central Park is Belvedere Castle. From its perch on an immense outcropping of bedrock called Vista Rock visitors to the Park can be enthralled by the view of the Delacorte Theater, Turtle Pond and the Great Lawn far below. This Victorian structure with its two balconies rises up on one of the highest natural elevations in the Park. It is a silhouette of distinction from the surrounding landscape and a mystery to behold as it appears through the tree branches to visitors who approach through the dense underbrush of the Ramble.
