Time in Central Park: the Nature in City Life

Central Park was the first major public park built in America.

The northern end of Central Park was the site of a series of fortifications during the American Revolution and the War of 1812.

Tavern on the Green was originally a sheepfold housing a shepherd and the flock that grazed Sheep Meadow until 1934.

Belvedere Castle was completed in 1872 as a viewing pavillion overlooking the lower Croton Reservoir. In 1937, the reservoir was filled in to become the Great Lawn.

The second Carousel, erected in 1873, was turned by "horse power". Twice destroyed by fire, it was replaced by a 1908 carved folk art work from Coney Island.

Central Park was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965 and a New York City Landmark in 1974.

Central Park's 843 acres of land include:

land, water and woodlands.

The rock outcrops in the Park, a metamorphic rock called Manhattan schist, are approximately 450 million years old.
