NEW YORK - Aug. 2, 2018 - PRLog -- Belvedere Castle in Central Park is closed for the remainder of 2018 while it undergoes extensive, much-needed renovations. The Gothic structure was designed by Calvert Vaux who, along with Frederick Law Olmsted, designed Central Park, which first opened to the public in 1858. Vaux didn't intend for the castle to serve any real function except as an ornamental structure and eye-catching landmark.

The work on Belvedere Castle is one of a handful of planned major renovations in the park. Other sites that will see upgrades include playgrounds, arches, and bridges, and there will be general improvements to landscape and infrastructure. Douglas Blonsky, the recently-retired CEO of the Conservancy said, "…we believe the time is right for a cultural renaissance for Central Park." (On March 1, 2018, Elizabeth W. Smith took over as CEO). In all, the park's facelift is expected to cost $300 million dollars.

A one of a kind Central Park Tour is offered by TopDogTours that sees a number of these sights daily with tours starting at 3:30pm in Grand Army Plaza, across from the The Plaza Hotel. Come check out the most famous Park in the world with TopDogTours.

Great, Fascinating, Diverse Tour of Central Park
"Nicole was great, led a wandering tour through many parts of the park I knew about but didn't KNOW about. She had great historical photos and answered questions about what was on the tour and plenty more about the Park. Highly recommended -- and we'll try other Top Dog tours when we're back in NY." - Gabriel G.

Great Tour of Central Park
"My husband and I visit NYC 4-5 times a year so we're always looking for other than the standard touristy things to do. Had a great walking tour of Central Park with Sean. It was a beautiful fall day, and the tour was enjoyable and informative. We learned so much about the park that we had never known. Thanks for a great tour, Sean!" - Julie S.
