East Meadow spans six acres of green pastoral surrounded by the finest trees in the lawn. The Meadow is perfect for playing sports, picnicking, and sunbathing. The lawn re-opened on September 20, 2011 after a $3M restoration by the Central Park Conservancy. Nearby Tourist Attractions: Conservatory Garden, French Garden, Italian Garden, English Garden, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Museum of the City, and El Museo del Barrio.
The grass is finally greener on the Upper East Side of Central Park – great place for sightseeing.
The East Meadow is a great place for playing recreational sports.
Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux’s original vision for Central Park was to have a collection of trees between the south end of the East Meadow and Conservatory Garden.
