Pilgrim Hill, located just southwest of Conservatory Water, is named for the statue of a pilgrim at the top of the hill.
Also known for its seasonal interest, the hill is densely planted with Yoshino cherry trees, making it one of Central Park’s best destinations for spring blooms. When it snows in winter, it becomes a popular sledding spot.
