Hallett Nature Sanctuary and the Pond Tour

Hallett Nature Sanctuary and the Pond Central Park Tour

Hallett Nature Sanctuary is the smallest of the Park's three woodland landscapes. Closed to the public in 1934, the Hallett Nature Sanctuary remained mostly untouched until 2001, when Central Park Conservancy took up a more comprehensive program of restoration and maintenance. Now, visitors can use the rustic trail to view native plantings that attract birds and other wildlife. Join our guides for this exclusive tour of the Hallett Nature Sanctuary, one of the most magical places in the Park.
