Explore Central Park with the Conservancy as Your Guide

The opportunities to engage with Central Park are as diverse as the City it calls home. The Conservancy's year-round lineup includes daily programs, seasonal and holiday events, educational opportunities, and ways to give back to your 843-acre backyard.

If you’re planning a field day, game tournament, birthday party, or any other type of event that includes activities for twenty people or more, you’ll need to request a special event permit from NYC Parks.
