Explore the South End

Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the designers of Central Park, created a park for the people, a space for all New Yorkers to escape from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Although Central Park was designed over 160 years ago, it still serves as an escape and the south end has something for everyone.

On this tour, visit some of the Park’s most iconic sites, including Sheep Meadow, Bethesda Terrace, and the iconic Dairy. You’ll learn about the history of Central Park and marvel at how the Park’s designers crafted this urban oasis out of hilly, swampy ground. You’ll also hear about the tireless work done by the Central Park Conservancy. By restoring and maintaining New York City’s backyard, the Central Park Conservancy is ensuring that Central Park remains an escape from the City for generations to come.
