Central Park weddings at Bethesda Fountain & Terrace
Bethesda Terrace is considered the heart of Central Park.
In their original plan, designers Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux envisioned a sweeping Promenade (the Mall) that led to a grand terrace overlooking the Lake. The magnificent carvings represent the four seasons and, on the side facing the Mall, the times of day.
Today, the Central Park Conservancy employs a sculptor to care for the sandstone carvings and sculpture and a zone gardener and their crew to take care of the landscapes. In the summer, aquatic plantings such as water lilies and lotus are placed in the fountain, reviving a 19th century tradition.
Same Sex Marriages available.
Weddings are performed Monday to Thursday, 10am - 3pm.
Located at Terrace Drive. This Vintage Cast Iron Fountain and breathtaking Terrace is the heart of Central Park. This location can hold up to 25 people.
Bookable though the 2014.
