Belvedere Castle Terrace in Central Park

Belvedere Castle Central Park Information

Belvedere Castle caps Vista Rock, which is the second-highest natural elevation in Central Park.  Because of this it provides the best and highest views of Central Park and its cityscape.  The name of the castle is fitting because it translates to “beautiful view” in Italian. It was built in 1869 as one of Central Park’s many whimsical structures intended as a lookout to the reservoir to the north (now the Great Lawn) and the Ramble to the south.  The Castle Terrace has two small covered areas which would protect your group from any light rain but it can get windy up there.  The largest of the covered areas has steps leading down to the edge of the castle, so a couple could marry on those steps to give their guests a spectacular view as the backdrop.

This location is very close to the Shakespeare Garden and Turtle Pond.  It is right in the middle of Central Park, so would require a walk through the Shakespeare Garden or perhaps a pedicab ride from the East side to get to it.  Please note that it will be closed for it’s first major refurbishment since the early 1980s from September 2017 until then end of December 2018.
