Part of Central Park
Sheep Meadow is the largest open field in original plan for Central Park at 15-acres. Despite its natural appearance, the meadow ended up being the most expensive part of the original park because a several foot thick layer of landfill had to be transported to raise the ground and a 16-foot ridge and a number of large boulders had to be blasted away to achieve the smooth grade. A flock of over 200 sheep grazed on the field up until 1934 when they were moved away so they wouldn't be eaten during the Great Depression. The meadow frequently hosts large-scale events including a peace protest in 1967 that had over 400,000 attendees.
