Belvedere Castle


Designed in 1865 by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould as a Victorian “Folly,” Belvedere Castle sits high atop Vista Rock, which is the second-highest natural elevation in Central Park. In addition to operating as a visitor center, the castle (located mid-park at 79th Street) provides excellent views of the surounding park.
