A short walk west from Cherry Hill down a nearby slope leads to Wagner Cove, one of Central Park's hidden oases of calm. Tucked away into a shady corner of the Lake, the Cove features a small rustic wood shelter. The original shelters date from the Park's first years, when rowboats would crisscross the Lake, picking up passengers at one of six shelters that dotted the edge of the Lake and dropping them off at another. Today there is no rowboat ferry service, but the charm of the site remains.
