Central Park Behind-the-Scenes Tour

The Central Park Conservancy cares for the entire Park! Join this tour to discover our remarkable story: from a plucky volunteer group to the organization that keeps Central Park clean and green.

Everyone knows Central Park, of course, but do you know the Central Park Conservancy? Founded in 1980 by New Yorkers with a deep love for the Park, the Conservancy is now the official caretaker of all 843 acres. We’re tasked with preserving and restoring this 19th-century gem, as well as adapting it to modern needs. Join us as we shine a light on our mission and walk in the footsteps of the people who have made Central Park possible.
