Peak Spring Blooms Alert

Central Park is bursting with color, making it the perfect time to visit and admire the spring flowers! Here’s where to find some favorites.


Crabapple trees

Conservatory Garden’s stunning crabapple allées are in bloom! The Garden is also home to the largest crabapple tree in the Park — find it near Burnett Fountain. Crabapple trees feature a delightful fragrance and a range of spring colors, from white to pink to deep burgundy. You can also find these blooming trees at the Harlem Meer and northwest of the Reservoir.

Cherry blossoms in Central Park

Cherry trees

Though many of the Park’s cherry blossoms have come and gone, the spectacular collection of Kwanzan cherry trees on the west side of the Reservoir is at peak bloom! Enter at West 86th or West 90th Street to find this stunning display of deep pink flowers. Bring a blanket — these trees provide a lovely canopy that’s perfect for a shaded picnic.


Tulips are blooming in a variety of colors! Conservatory Garden features a display of 20,000 tulips in shades of pink, purple, deep red, and pale yellow in its North Garden alone. You can also find tulips at Shakespeare Garden, Grand Army Plaza, and the east side of the Reservoir. Don’t miss these much-loved flowers right now in the Park.
