East Green

Visitors in search of a tranquil area to relax on a lawn can head to East Green, one of eight designated Quiet Zones in Central Park. Not to be confused with East Meadow, which is further north, this lawn is situated just above the gentle slopes of the Dene. The lawn today is a hotspot for summertime sunbathers and a place for quiet reflection and reading all year round. In the spring, magnolias, crabapples, and Kwanzan cherry trees are spectacular.


East Side of the Park from 69th to 72nd Streets.
