"Belvedere Castle" as it is known
to the non-magical residents of the city
is home to a family of European Kobolds,
who first visited the castle on a vacation in the '80s
and simply never left.
Now they run a nature observatory, and throw open their doors each day
to other visiting tourists.
Perched on Vista Rock, the second highest natural elevation in the Park,
the Keep offers a panoramic view to the north.
You can look down into the Delacorte Theater to the left, home to summertime Public Theater productions of Shakespeare and cutting edge interpretations of new and classic plays. Straight ahead is the newly-restored, 55-acre Great Lawn, once one of the Park's original reservoirs; now it offers softball fields, basketball courts, and an abundance of sunbathers. And below, with a boulder-strewn shoreline, is Turtle Pond.
