About Turtle Pond
The Turtle Pond is a feature connected to the Great Lawn in Central Park. Both the lawn and the pond occupy most of the 35-acre flat site, Lower Reservoir. The Belvedere Castle overlooks its southwest corner. As its name suggests, the pond has a little island for turtles' sunning spots and secured egg-laying sites. This pond, together with the Lawn, had been used for huge events and as a film location. The Turtle Pond also holds a secret, of course. Walking backwards into the reflection of the moon in the water will open up a path to Seelie Court of the
faeries. Watch out still. Dark magic lurks around here. . .
