With the weather finally warming up, an outdoor party is a great idea for anyone making birthday plans. And what better place to have a picnic for a young prince or princess than by an actual castle? Fortunately, New Yorkers are in luck because our very own Central Park has just that!
Located mid-park at 79th Street, accessible from both the East and West Side of Manhattan, Belvedere Castle is a gorgeous 19th century structure designed by Calvert Vaux (who also co-designed Central Park with Olmsted). Although it was originally built to be merely decorative, it's now used by the National Weather Service as a place to collect data. It's also host to many free activities throughout the year including "On A Wing" birding events, astronomy talks, storytelling, and even a haunted castle event every Halloween!
Of course you must obtain a permit to have a party or picnic here, but these are surprisingly inexpensive and can be obtained here. But first things first: swing by our website or call us at (646) 504-9824 to book your entertainment with NY Princess Party. We offer many characters, including princes and princesses, and we're familiar with the area since we've done parties here before (just last week, Cinderella and Rapunzel paid a surprised birthday girl a visit).
So... Check out Belvedere Castle, pick a date, contact us, and let us help you make your child's birthday a magical and memorable one!
