Merchants' Gate Plaza

Merchants Gate Plaza

Merchants’ Gate Plaza is a welcoming public plaza at Central Park’s southwestern gate, its most popular entrance. The Columbus Circle Information Kiosk is located here, easily spotted thanks to its green awnings. Visitors are welcome to grab a seat on the low stone wall or at the designated seating area before heading into the Park.

In the holiday season, the Columbus Circle Holiday Market operates from this plaza and features unique gifts from vendors selling goods ranging from food to candles to clothes.
