Central Park In-Person Walking Tour

July 29, 2021
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Central Park West and West 66th Street, Near sign for Tavern on the Green

A walking tour of Manhattan's 843 acre "backyard!”  Since the 1860s Central Park has acted as the “lungs” of the city, providing a refuge from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan life for residents and tourists alike. Explore Manhattan’s collective backyard and learn about the physical construction of the largest man-made work of art in New York, visit the scenic “literary walk,” enjoy the exquisite architectural details in the Bethesda Arcade and Terrace, and lose yourself (not literally- you’ll have a guide!) in the rustic Ramble. Guides may also discuss the Sheep Meadow, Belvedere Castle, Bow Bridge, the skating pond, Seneca Village, the Casino and the site of the “rocking chair” riot.

This tour is limited to 25 people.  $10 non-refundable fee.
