Shakespeare Garden in Central Park

Shakespeare Garden Central Park Information

The Shakespeare Garden is a lovely four-acre flower garden, so named because the flowers in it are all mentioned in Shakespeare’s plays and poems. These English flowers are best seen during the Spring and Summer.  It was added to Central Park in 1916.

At the bottom of the garden there is a wooden platform with a rustic bench on it, accessed by some steps, this is a nice spot for a small wedding.  At the top of the garden, there is a large stone bench in the shade, it is a very cooling place to sit, and is also very well suited to a small to medium sized wedding.  There is a grass clearing in between the Shakespeare Garden and Belvedere Castle with rustic wooden benches, in the shade of trees.

The garden is on a steep slope, having several paved pathways between the flowers and some wooden benches. Because of the slope, it may not be pleasant to walk through for all wedding guests.  There is nowhere in the garden to shelter from the rain.  The garden makes for very beautiful pictures, with all the flowers, but there is some traffic noise from one of the roads that runs through the park.

Below are some wedding photographs from the Shakespeare Garden.  These photos are intended to show the location in as much useful detail as possible for any couples considering a wedding there.  Please feel free to email me,  if you would like any further advice or information on this location.
