The park was a welcomed place of peacefulness from the craziness of the city streets. We had trouble finding our way around. Entered at 72nd street to see Strawberry Fields, and then had no idea which way to go from there. There were no printed maps or attraction directional signs. Asked at least 10 people before finding the Belvedere Castle. Our frustration took away from the enjoyment. As a visitor with very limited time, map or signs would have helped so much.

Central Park is huge and there are so many things to see and do here. We just focuses in on this one section of the park because we have never explored this area before. To be honest, I was not aware that there was a "Castle" in Central Park until my 10 year old told me that the weather people on the news measure rain from the castle in the park. He's also the one who told me about the statue of Balto. I did'nt know about that either. The castle is small and although you can see the weather instruments on top of the castle, there is some, but not enough information in the way of explanation. What is the importance of the weather station, why in this location, what do the instruments do, etc. Visitors Center was dissappointing. More info would have been better. The views from the top are beautiful. Nice photo ops. Also, the area around the castle is very pretty. Swedish Cottage, Shakespeare Gardens, Marionette Theatre, Turtle Pond (tons of turtles watched them for a long time). Also, tons of butterflies. Spend time exploring this wonderful park.
