Central Park Visitor Centers
Dana Discovery - Central Park Visitor Center, New York City
  • Belvedere Castle; 79th Street, mid-park
    Calvert Vaux created the miniature castle in 1869 as one of its many whimsical structures intended as a lookout to the reservoir to the north (now the Great Lawn) and the Ramble to the south.

  • Charles A. Dana Discovery Center; 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues
    The Charles A. Dana Discovery Center opened to the public in 1993 and offers a wide variety of the Conservancy's free education and community programs, seasonal exhibits and holiday celebrations.
  • The Chess & Checkers House; 64th Street, mid-park
    Players are welcome to borrow pieces from the Conservancy staff, or bring their own. Dominos and backgammon are also available.

  • Dairy Visitor Center; 65th Street, mid-park
    Parkgoers can find information on Park events and programs at the Dairy. Maps, guides and gifts are also available, all of which support the Conservancy's mission. Park architect and designer Calvert Vaux originally created this charming Victorian cottage as a quiet retreat for children and their caregivers. In the nineteenth century, the Dairy became a source of fresh milk and snacks. Families came to drink milk and enjoy pastries and ices under the loggia and enjoy the cooling breezes coming from the nearby pond.
