The Conservatory Water at Central Park was generally inspired by model boat ponds of the in Paris of the late 19th century. This was just like what happened where there was a place created for adults and children who could experience the best of boating apart from other things they have to offer.  It would interest you to know that this was an original part of the Olmsted and Vaux’s ‘Greensward Plan’ for the park. In fact this place was first planned to be just a small pool for an ornamental, formal glass house garden. However in the end the maintenance of this plan proved to be too expensive. This therefore meant that the Conservatory Water as well as the Conservatory Garden was formed in its place.
The fact of the matter is that the 72nd street site has bordered to the north by the whimsical Alice in the Wonderland statue coupled with a sculpture of the children’s author known as Hans Christian Anderson reading his story called The Ugly Duckling which is on the west side. This place was during the months of winter opened for ice skating and as such was well known for this purpose. Also this is place that is well known during the summertime and spring for boating purposes.
The Conservatory Water is a fabulous place that is surrounded completely by white and pink blossoms of the spring cherry trees. It is important to note that it is able to hold its season of boating from the month of April to October every year. The rentals of the boat indeed are all available at the Kerbs Memorial Boathouse. Over here there are a series of lessons that can be patronized for any budding model boat person interested in learning. You would definitely have the best of times as you visit the Central Park.
