Charles A. Dana Discovery Center
This hall at the head of Harlem Meer—the park's second-largest man-made body of water—is home to a wide variety of facilities for visitors in the northern end of Central Park, including the park's only environmental discovery center, an office that loans out fishing gear for use in the Meer and a space that hosts children's workshops. There's also an ongoing exhibition, Ponds, Pipes, and People: Water in Central Park, that explores the area’s watery habitats.
