Sunbathers, Picnickers and Frisbee Players at Sheep Meadow

Sheep Meadow is a vast 15-acre green grass meadow in Central Park. It is open from mid-April through mid-October attracting thousands of visitors, mostly sunbathers, frisbee players and picnickers. A perfect place to relax and unwind, the meadow was actually home to a flock of sheep from 1864 until 1934. The sheep and shepherd were housed in a fanciful Victorian building nearby that became the former Tavern on the Green restaurant.
