Conservatory Garden Tour

The Conservatory Garden looks unlike anything else in Central Park. Learn about its history, design, and blooms from the people who know it best.

Take a behind-the-scenes tour with Conservatory Garden staff as we explore this urban gem’s six beautiful acres. On this tour, you’ll experience the Garden’s seasonal displays of tulips, lilacs, crabapple trees, and summer perennials through the eyes of the people who care for them day in and day out. The Conservatory Garden is just as sure to erase the stresses of city living today as it did when it first opened in 1937.

Recommended for those interested in horticulture, blooms, and an escape from city life.
