WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE PARK
It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Spring! Signs of Spring are popping up everywhere in Central Park, and while what we consider spring technically begins on March 20, meteorological spring started March 1. You can start to see shoots popping up and flowers blooming and hear robins and bluebirds singing, especially around areas such as Shakespeare or Conservatory Gardens. To see which flowers bloom in the Conservatory Gardens check out centralpark.com/guide/conservatory-garden-flowers.

answer to the previous quiz:
Located in the park off of Fifth Avenue near 61st Street, the statue of Thomas Moore is made out of bronze, and sits on a Conway green granite base. It was sculpted by Dennis Sheahan. The statue was commissioned by the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, and was unveiled in 1880 on the 101st anniversary of Moore’s birth. Thomas Moore was considered the national bard of Ireland in the early 19th century. He was known as a poet and as an author of lyric songs.
