About Conservatory Gardens English Garden

The Conservatory’s enchanting English garden will give you the romantic ceremony of your dreams with its natural flowing garden technique. With the mix of concentric planting beds, shrubs, and trees, you’ll get a Secret Garden vibe that creates the perfect classic English garden for your ceremony. Like the other Conservatory Gardens, the English Garden offers several possible ceremony locations. One of the most popular ceremony locations is under the majestic willow trees covering the center slate walkway, positioning celebrants and guests to overlook the water lily pool. The natural designs of the English garden also offer celebrants a grand entrance flow from at least two different locations. At one end of the water lily pool is the Burnett Fountain, featuring two figures reminiscent of the main characters of Burnett’s The Secret Garden. Surrounding the fountain are five seasonal beds featuring spring bulbs, followed by annual flower displays, with a slope of woodland plants lining the western edge of the garden. The English Garden is also home to many flowering trees, in bloom at different times of the year, including magnolia and lilac trees. The Central Park Conservatory manages and takes care of the six-acre Conservatory Gardens and the rest of the park. The Conservatory Garden is split into three separate gardens, each with its own style. The northern garden is the French Garden, the center garden is the Italian Garden, and the southern garden is the English Garden. This breathtaking garden is the jewel of Central Park and boasts a beautiful, grand entrance through the ornate Vanderbilt Gate. The Conservatory Garden’s English Garden can be found on the northeastern end of Central Park. Away from the popular attractions of Central Park, the English Garden sees less foot traffic than other ceremony locations throughout the park. Garden visitors are respectful of celebrants and their guests, respectfully giving them space to enjoy this moment of a lifetime. If seating is required, bench seating is available throughout the garden close to the recommended ceremony locations. The English Garden is wheelchair accessible, with restrooms available near the entrance of the Conservatory Garden.
