Autumn Tree Walk

Enjoy Central Park’s spectacular fall colors as we admire a curated selection of its 18,000 trees on this autumn tree walk around the Pool.

One of Central Park’s hidden treasures, the Pool captivates visitors every year with its stunning display of fall foliage, including red oak, hickory, tupelo, bald cypress, and sugar maple trees. Embrace the changing seasons with Conservancy guides as we explore the Pool’s serene and varied landscape, home to turtles, birds, fish, and other wildlife. While you’re here, discover some of the north end’s secrets with a visit to the rustic bridge and a waterfall that beckons you to the North Woods. Take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy one of the season’s highlights with this tree walk around the Pool.
