Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing
Admire the winter wonderland around you by snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. The best places to snowshoe and ski are Sheep Meadow, the Great Lawn, and other large meadows in Central Park—in addition to the bridle path, which the Conservancy leaves snow-covered in the winter to protect its soft surface. These activities are allowed when conditions permit and there are at least six inches of snow on the ground.
Fill yourself with holiday cheer on this winter stroll through the south end.
