Along the way, you'll learn the fascinating history of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux's urban masterpiece.

Central Park has been called “one of the greatest works of art in America”. Come see why!

Your walking tour will start at Manhattan's Grand Army Plaza and continue on through the park. Your guide will show you all the highlights of the park at a leisurely pace, while providing historic photos for reference. This tour takes place year round, as each season is a different experience.

Awesome tour of Central Park. Jeremy was super knowledgeable and I’m certain after the tour that if I hadn’t taken the tour, I would have just wandered around Central Park with no appreciation for the meaning and thought behind each part. Absolutely
