This pastoral meadow just off of Fifth Avenue is a popular spot to relax and picnic. In the warmer months, the lush green lawn is dotted with sunbathers and picnic blankets.
The East Meadow has recently been restored and reopened to the public in 2011. The project's completion marks another important achievement for the Conservancy: all of Central Park's major lawns have now been restored.
