One of the seven bodies of water in Central Park, the Pond can be found near Central Park South between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. The Black Cherry, Sawtooth Oak, Gray Birch and Tupelo trees that surround the pond provide a colorful backdrop for the fairytale-like, stone Gapstow Bridge and the ducks that swim in the pond.
