Discovery Club for Families

This fall get exclusive access to the Hallett Nature Sanctuary with Central Park Conservancy's Discovery Club for Families. Adults and children will get an "insider’s view" of how people, plants, and wildlife thrive in Central Park.

In the center of this playground at East 76th Street is a whimsical water spray fountain featuring characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Originally the Sophie Loeb Drinking Fountain that stood between the Heckscher Playground and Heckscher Ballfields, it was moved to the present location to better serve children as a water play feature. The sculptor was Frederick George Richard Roth, the artist who also did the carving and scultures at the Zoo, Mother Goose, and Balto. Play features include colorful pipe frame equipment and bucket swings geared toward toddlers.

Age Groups:
Pre-school, School-age
