Visitors can enjoy views of the Delacorte Theater, the Great Lawn, the Turtle Pond and the Ramble from the castle's two balconies. Inside they'll find the Henry Luce Nature Observatory, where they can peer into microscopes and telescopes, look at skeletons and papier mâché birds, or borrow a field pack that contains binoculars and reference materials.

Belvedere Castle is a little treat inside Central Park and a small part of the park I never would have known about had I not stumbled upon it myself. It's located right near where Shakespeare in the Park is performed and you can see the castle from the Great Lawn. There's not much to do there but climb around and take in the views, but it just is another wonderful gem within the park.
