Our Tree Discovery Walks will help you enjoy the diversity of trees within the Park’s 843-acres. Wander at your own pace along six scenic routes that include some of the Park's most celebrated destinations, including Strawberry Fields, Bethesda Fountain, Conservatory Water, the Great Lawn, The Pool and Conservatory Garden.
Each walk features scores of trees, each marked with identification plaques on the trunk or on a nearby sign in the ground. Trees aren’t just for experts, but we want to give you an expert’s view of the Park: A rich landscape where every tree and shrub has a unique name and identity.
