Discovery Walks for Families

Discovery Walks for Families: The Ramble

Get "lost" with us in the Ramble! Explore how this carefully planned woodland provides habitat for a variety of wildlife. Discover who calls the forest floor, the Lake shoreline, and the treetops their home.

Discovery Walks for Families are a great way for parents and children of all ages to learn about the nature and history of Central Park in fun and creative ways. Join us for hands-on exploration using Discovery Kits – backpacks filled with kid-friendly binoculars, field guides, hand lenses and a complementary Discovery Journal.
