Discovery Walks for Families: Time Travelers


Fort Clinton Restoration

Join us this President’s Day for a journey through time – from the Ice Age, through the Revolutionary War and War of 1812, to today – and discover how Manhattan’s geography shaped the design (and use) of the Harlem Meer landscape.

Bring your family for a guided walk and discover why Central Park is a sanctuary for plants, animals, and humans alike. Learn about the architecture, landscapes, and ecosystems of the Park through hands-on exploration.

Pre-registration required as space is limited. Families with children ages 5+ only; no groups, please. Please arrive at walk location 15 minutes before the start of the Discovery Walk to allow time for check in.

Terrain: Uneven, with hills, stairs, and wood-chipped trails; may not be suitable for strollers.
