The Central Park Model Boat Pond
- also known as Conservatory Water. This spot has attracted families, artists and model boat enthusiasts. The 72nd street site is bordered by the Alice in Wonderland statue to the north, as well as a sculpture of children's author Hans Christian Anderson reading The Ugly Duckling, to the west. To get there enter the park at Fifth Avenue and 76th Street.
