Fall Forest Bathing Walk

Engage your senses, calm your mind, and immerse yourself in the Park's fall foliage.

This fall, experience Central Park’s seasonal colors and try forest bathing: a science-backed mindfulness exercise to reduce stress and promote mental health and wellbeing. In the 1980s, shinrin-yoku—which translates to “bathing in the forest atmosphere”—emerged in Japan as a public health effort to ameliorate and prevent feelings of burnout and overload in densely populated cities.

On this walk, Conservancy guides will lead you around the Pool: one of the Park’s most beloved leaf-peeping sites. Along the way, we'll share the science of fall foliage and engage your senses with a variety of forest-bathing techniques. Join us to immerse yourself in the Park's beauty and let the seasonal sights melt your worries away.
