On an unseasonably cool Saturday afternoon, I sipped a glass of Chardonnay at the new Tavern On the Green's terrace bar. The entire restaurant has been refurbished and renovated, with a change in menu as well. Tavern on the Green's redesign, under new ownership, is gorgeous. Meanwhile, on a stroll through the Park, entering at Columbus Circle, I passed a Latin dance gathering, drummers, large bubble makers, and the usual bikers, dog walkers, picnickers, and horse carriages.

The outdoor bar and terrace dining at 67th Street, at the Park's west side, affords a lovely view of Central Park's 15 acre Sheep Meadow, a former grazing field for a flock of pure bred sheep. Tavern On the Green was originally built to house the 200 sheep, who enhanced Central Park's romanticism. The road between the Park and the Victorian "sheepfold" was created for the sheep to cross back and forth. After the sheep were moved to Brooklyn in 1934, and then to the Catskills, restaurateurs designed Tavern On the Green.

Walking north, I passed Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, with The Lake in Central Park filled with rowboats and the infamous gondolier. It's easy by dusk to find one's way back to the Columbus Circle, Park exit, just looking up and following the red CNN sign. I highly recommend Tavern On the Green's terrace and bar as a destination when exploring the Park.
