Central Park consists of 843 acres, and 58 total miles of walking trails. So, needless to say, there's a lot to see. From the musical Delacorte Clock to the sweeping Central Park Mall to the Alice in Wonderland memorial to Strawberry Fields to the gorgeous Bethesda Terrace, your guide will make sure you get to see all of the highlights. Along the way, you'll learn the history of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux's urban masterpiece.
Your walking tour will start at Manhattan's Grand Army Plaza and continue on through Central Park. Your guide will show you all the highlights of the park at a leisurely pace. This tour takes place year round, as each season is a different experience. The best thing about this park is that every month brings changes and new discoveries.

As you walk, the tour guide will point out the highlights of the park (from the well-known to the smaller secrets), take your questions, and show you the best photo spots.
The tour will end in the beautiful Upper West Side neighborhood.
