New York’s Central Park Reopens Four Acre Secret Garden

Central Park Conservancy’s Woodlands Initiative led the reopening of the area. The Initiative is a $40 million project that has worked on several significant areas of the 843-acre park, including the secret garden. Known as the Promontory, it was renamed as the Hallet Nature Sanctuary in 1986. The area had been fenced off as an intended bird sanctuary. Robert Moses was parks commissioner back in 1934 when he declared the area would be a haven for birds.
