Let's Ramble

As promised - Mom and I headed to The Ramble in Central Park.

The Ramble is 38-acres of what appears to be untouched woodlands smack in the middle of Central Park. In reality, like the rest of the park, The Ramble was all part of the Olmsted's grand design. Even the stream, known as The Gill, was created for this area. It can be turned on and off at a water tap.

Our journey started at the Bow Bridge.


Once in the Ramble – you loose site of the surrounding city. You feel transported to a mountain wilderness that seems to be hours away.

Hey – we’re city girls – we do what we can within shouting distance of Tiffany's and Bergdorf's . In fact on our little journey today we discovered a rustic shelter...

Enjoyed the cool shade and gentle breezes... on the pathways....


And the granite steps.....


And the boulders....OK - fine - we (make that I) took a nap or two. A perfectly lazy Saturday in the Park!


As we wound our way through the woods to the Belvedere Castle – we came across the official NYC Weather Monitoring Station.


When broadcasters mention the temperature and precipitation for NYC – they mean right here – in The Ramble of Central Park!

Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend! Until our next adventure

What a lovely oasis you have in the middle of the city. I've been in Central Park a couple of times but totally missed The Ramble.

That is such a lovely place to be whether in New York or anywhere on the planet. Lucky, lucky you☺

My dream is to go to Central Park! And now that you've showed me the Ramble, I want to go more.
