Summit Rock

Standing at a height of 141.8 feet, Summit Rock is the highest natural elevation in the Park, while Vista Point remains the only higher elevation in the area. Located at Central Park West and 83rd Street, Summit Rock was the site of Seneca Village in the 19th century.

Today, Central Park visitors often climb to the top of Summit Rock, where they can view the city below and even catch a glimpse of New Jersey on the Rock’s western side.
