I think we all know by now that this statue should be of Togo. Togo ran 261 miles of the Great Race of Mercy as a sole lead dog of his team while Balto only ran the last 55 miles with a co-lead named Fox. With that being said, this statue is easy to find, and still really cool to see. It's amazing to think what these dogs are capable of, and how many people would have died if it wasn't for them.

At evening hours you only know that this statue is a little bit different than all others around because of crowds with usually gathering around. Poorly lit at night. Plaques are not readable at evening

My granddaughters always loved the movie Balto, watched it over and over again. And so, when we went to the Central Park Zoo last week as part of a 5 day trip to Manhattan, I reminded them that the statue would be close by. Here they are, now 16 years old (twins), and still they were thrilled to see THE statue from their beloved childhood movie. Brought a smile to my face (and a great wish to turn back time and have my little toddler granddaughters back, even for just a day!). This visit will now be a new favorite memory...

The Balto Statue is located within Central Park and is pretty easy to find with the help of most online maps. It's a nice tribute to a Siberian Husky that trekked for hundreds of miles in freezing temperatures to deliver the diphtheria vaccine to fight the outbreak in Alaska. Definitely worth a visit if going to Central Park.

My grandaughter loved the Balto Statue. It is pretty large and sits on a small hill of rocks that the kids can climb on. Lots of kids were getting their photos taken.
