Cherry Hill

Welcome to Cherry Hill, one of the most beautiful spots in Central Park! Named after the cherry trees that bloom in the springtime, this picturesque hill is located near the Lake and offers breathtaking views of the city skyline.

Cherry Hill has a rich history that dates back to the park's creation in the mid-1800s. It was originally designed as a scenic overlook, with winding paths leading up to the top of the hill where visitors could enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Over the years, it has become a popular spot for picnicking, bird-watching, and taking in the stunning scenery.

One of the most notable features of Cherry Hill is its beautiful fountain, which was added to the site in 1860. The fountain features a bronze statue of a boy and girl, known as "the Angel of the Waters," and is surrounded by colorful flowers and lush greenery.

In addition to the fountain, Cherry Hill is also home to several benches and picnic tables, making it the perfect spot for a leisurely afternoon in the park. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can even rent a rowboat or take a gondola ride on the nearby Lake!

If you're planning a visit to Cherry Hill, be sure to check out some of the other nearby attractions in Central Park, such as the Alice in Wonderland statue, the Conservatory Water, and the Bethesda Terrace.
