Central Park Model Boat (sail boat) Pond

The site is named for a conservatory that was included in the original plans by Frederick Law Olmsted’s and Calvert Vaux. The original plan for Central Park called for a formal flower garden with a large glass house, or conservatory, for exotic tropical plants. An ornamental pond was constructed as a reflecting pool for the conservatory, but when the plan for a structure was abandoned, the water body became the popular model boat pond, inspired by those in Parisian parks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An ornamental pond was constructed as a reflecting pool for the conservatory, but when the plan for a structure was abandoned, the water body became the popular model boat pond, inspired by those in Parisian parks.

Today radio powered boats as well as uniquely constructed sailboats with large wind driven sails stream across the shimmering waters.

We enjoy this part of Central Park very much, you will often find us sitting next to the pond relaxing, reading or just meditating.
