Bring your family for a guided walk in this four-acre landscape named for the famed English poet and playwright. This garden features flowers and plants mentioned in Shakespeare’s poems and plays and is designed to resemble the Bard’s native English countryside. Learn about its history, design, and what it takes to maintain a healthy and beautiful garden through hands-on exploration and guided activities in your complementary Discovery Journal.

Discovery Walks for Families are a great way for parents and children of all ages to learn about the nature and history of Central Park in fun and creative ways.
