Discovery Walks for Families

Location: Various locations throughout Central Park

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 using Discovery Kits – rugged backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, and hand lenses.

Discovery Walks for Families take place on Saturdays, Sundays, and on select school holidays at various locations throughout the Park.

Upcoming Discovery Walks:
Statues and Monuments
Time Travelers
Towering Trees
