Scene from Shakespeare Garden, a part of Central Park in NYC, painted in watercolor abounds with beautiful annual and perennial flowers and is often referred to in his poems and plays. It was first conceived in the 1880s
when park commissioner George Clausen asked the Park Entomologist to create a garden adjacent to the nature study center in the Swedish Cottage. In 1913, Commissioner Gaynor dedicated it officially to the works of Shakespeare.
In 1987, after years of neglect, Central Park Conservancy restored and expanded the garden, repaving pathways and installing rustic wooden benches and bronze plaques with quotations from the Bards masterpieces.
A Charming and Educational "Must See"place to visit.
