Discovery Kits

Young explorers are invited to borrow an official Central Park Conservancy Discovery Kit or take away a complimentary Discovery Journal from our visitor centers!

Looking to take your young explorer on an adventure in Central Park? Borrow one of our free Discovery Kits for curated activities focused on the Park’s most interesting and kid-friendly locales. Discovery Kits include kid-sized binoculars, a hand lens, colored pencils, sketch paper, and a Discovery Journal to keep. Check them out at the Dana Discovery Center!

Group reservations of Discovery Kits are free, but require a $20 deposit that will be refunded upon the Kits' return. Group reservations can be made via the Dana Center Group Reservation Request form.
