A Secret Portion of Central Park Just Reopened
on 12 May 2016
A previously restricted portion of Central Park has reopened to the public after over 80 years. Located just south of Wollman Rink, the four-acre peninsula was closed off to the public in the ‘30s by former parks commissioner Robert Moses to serve as a sanctuary for birds. Now, under a new initiative by the Central Park Conservancy that aims to revitalize unkempt areas of the park, it will open to the public throughout summer. Head to the New York Times to see what times you’ll be able to explore the reopened space.
