When Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux designed Central Park in 1858, they left relatively untouched the rocky Promontory on the north edge of the swamp which was to be transformed into the Pond. The four-acre woodland was formally closed to the public and declared the Bird Sanctuary in 1934. The area was renamed the Hallett Nature Sanctuary in 1986 after George Hallett, Jr., (1895-1965) a prominent lead inn New York City's civic movement for over half a century and as ardent nature lover and bird watcher.
The seclusion of this area from the general public allows many species of animal and plantlife to flourish in a more natural ecological community than elsewhere in Central Park.
