Central Park Rocks! Tour

Central Park’s iconic boulders are a year-round attraction. Join us to explore their unique place in the Park’s history and design.

Have you ever climbed Central Park’s iconic boulders, or simply admired them from afar? If so, you might have found yourself curious about these massive rock outcroppings. How did they get here? What are they made of? And is their impressive look natural or the result of human intervention? This special rock-forward tour will answer all these questions, and more!

Take a deep dive into their geology and history with our Conservancy guides, and discover how and when these rocks formed, their impact on the built environment of New York City, and their place in Central Park’s masterful design. We will get close, touch, and even mount some of these beloved and enduring fixtures.
