What people say

"This is the oldest man-made object in the park, created roughly 3500 years ago, and the oldest outdoor monument in the City. The plaza where the obelisk is located is particularly pretty in the Spring when the trees bloom with bright pink flowers. Time: 5 minutes"
"The Obelisk, also known as Cleopatra's Needle, has a bunch of stunning Saucer Magnolia Blossom Trees in and around it. "
