During one of our long walks through Central Park, Will and I stumbled upon the most magical place — Shakespeare Garden in Central Park in spring.
The English-inspired garden was in full bloom with tulips the size of teacups and blushing trees and shrubs of every variety. It is downright breathtaking! How in the world are people not talking about this place more?
Will and I were so impressed by the Shakespeare Garden that we returned three times since. Considering there’s always something to do in New York City, choosing to re-do something more than once is saying a lot.
Shakespeare Garden is named after none other than William Shakespeare. It was originally created as an educational space to teach school children about the various plants Shakespeare mentioned in his works. As with all great ideas, it started to grow.
Now it’s a full fledged garden that truly comes alive during the spring months (it really is stunning).
What’s more, the garden’s curator makes it a point of pride to shake things up from year to year. The garden draws visitors on a daily basis — some return day after day. As such, the curator wants them to be surprised from one year to the next. How sweet is that?
This year’s theme? Sunset colors!
I hope you’re ready for photos of spring blooms, because I couldn’t help myself!
