East Meadow Tree Walk

Spot numerous species of trees on this beautiful walk up the east side to Conservatory Garden.

When Central Park designers Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux set out to create a great public space, they wanted to bring nature into the cement City to give New Yorkers a place for reflection, relaxation, and appreciation.

Visitors on the East Meadow Tree Walk will see dozens of species of trees, each with a unique identity. Signs on tree trunks or nearby on the ground help visitors identify the various trees along the path, giving walkers the opportunity to learn something new while they enjoy a tranquil stroll towards the Park’s only formal garden.

This tour is roughly a mile and should take about 60 minutes to complete.
