There is nothing like a wedding in New York City’s Central Park. Among the thousands of acres of greenery are hidden dozens of wedding ceremony locations.

Wedding ceremonies can be conducted in any of the parks, but DO REQUIRE A PERMIT and in most cases a fee. There are also limitations to the size of your wedding party.

To apply for a special events permit and learn about parks rules for special events, visit the Special Events permit page for New York City Central Park.

Some of the most popular wedding ceremonies in Central Park include:

  • Bethesda Fountain Terrace
  • Gapstown Bridege / The Pond
  • Ladies Pavilion
  • Shakespear Garden
  • Cherry Hill
  • Cop Cot
  • Bow Bridge
  • Dene Summerhouse
  • The Pool on North Lawn
  • Wisteria Pergola – Conservatory Garden
