Get an insider’s look at the world’s greatest urban park from the people who know it best. Led by Conservancy guides, Official Central Park Tours provide a behind-the-scenes perspective on the history, design, and ecology of Central Park.

March 19 is the first day of spring, and the Conservancy is celebrating its arrival with our first woodlands tours of 2020 — in addition to a new birding offering. As a special spring treat, all programs taking place on March 19 are free! Join us for a tour or open birding in the Hallett Nature Sanctuary, or venture into the North Woods or the Ramble with a knowledgeable Conservancy guide.

To continue celebrating spring, all Official Central Park Tours from March 20 to 22 — the first weekend of spring — are only $10. A lot goes into maintaining Central Park’s 843 acres. When you purchase a tour ticket, you’ll have the option to donate to the Conservancy and support our year-round work.
