Central Park Garden was located on Seventh Avenue between 58th and 59th streets. It was an entertainment complex with an open air auditorium, restaurant and beer garden. It opened in 1868 and continued under various ownerships until around 1877 when it became Central Park Riding Academy. During its early years the famous conductor Theodore Thomas held the well received summer nights concert series there. Sports events such as wrestling and boxing were also held in the auditorium.

It is a piece of New York city history.
