Strawberry Fields
— "Imagine" Mosaic


Strawberry Fields
Strawberry Fields is located on the West Side of Central Park, between 71st and 74th Streets.

Garden of Peace
Strawberry Fields (also known as The Garden of Peace) is named after the Beatles' song, "Stawberry Fields Forever" in honor of John Lennon.



When John Lennon and Yoko Ono lived in the nearby Dakota, on 72nd Street and Central Park West, they adopted this beautiful landscape as their favorite oasis in Central Park.

Strawberry Fields was dedicated by Mayor Edward I. Koch on October 9, 1985— John Lennon's birthday.



Famous Central Park Statues
Central Park is home to numerous fountains, historical monuments and famous sculptures.

Four of our favorite statues are located at Conservatory Water (Alice in Wonderland and Hans Christian Anderson) and Delacorte Theater (Romeo & Juliet and Prospero & Miranda — two of Shakespeare's main characters in his play "The Tempest."

"Imagine" Mosaic
During your visit to Strawberry Fields, be sure to check out the beautiful circular black-and-white "Imagine" mosaic along the pathway — a tribute to John Lennon. Fashioned by Italian craftsmen, it was a gift from Naples, Italy.
