New York City’s Alice in Wonderland Statue in Central Park has been a favorite for children and adults alike for more than 50 years.
Sitting with Alice on her mushroom are some of the characters she meets in her adventures, including the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and the Dormouse. Enjoy these photos of Alice and her friends as well as some memorable quotes from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Kids and kids at heart are encouraged to climb on the mushrooms and play with these life sized and well loved characters.
The statue is located on the East side of the park, near 74th Street.
