The Hallett Nature Sanctuary and the Pond Tour

Recently restored to preserve and maintain its natural splendor, the Hallett Nature Sanctuary is the smallest of Central Park's three woodland landscapes. It closed to the public in 1934, and remained untouched for nearly 70 years. Now, visitors can walk the rustic trail to view native plantings that attract birds and other wildlife.
