The Conservatory Garden at 105th Street and Fifth Avenue, a six acre formal garden, whose allées of flowering pink and white crabapples are now in bloom. The garden is divided into three smaller gardens — Italian, French and English. The Center Garden is Italianate. Spring tulips are in the northern French Garden. An English style garden is to the south with a beautiful memorial fountain, a tribute to Frances Hodgson Burnett, the author of The Secret Garden. Flower beds filled with daffodils and other perennials, surround the pool. The Garden is an officially designated Quiet Zone and in our frantically-paced city, a wonderful place to stroll, relax, read, decompress and simply enjoy the beauty of nature.
