Explore the lesser-known part of Central Park on a tour of the Hidden Gems of Central Park’s North End. The North End of Central Park has a mystique all its own because it’s so far removed from the more heavily-visited southern sections of the park. Join us on a walk through woods reminiscent of the Adirondacks and discover how this landscape was shaped by the geology of the area.
On this tour, our expert guide will discuss events that occurred nearby spanning three centuries. Guests will locate where encampments from two wars were situated and the site of the former convent where injured soldiers were treated. We will learn about the surprising history of the Block House, a fort from War of 1812 which predates the Park. You will also discover a remnant from one of the grandest mansions that ever existed in New York City, a site that leads into the spectacular Conservatory Garden. The beauty and unusual history of Central Park’s North End make it a truly singular place to visit and we look forward to exploring it with you!
All of Untapped New York’s upcoming in-person experiences will adhere to our new health and safety measures to ensure everyone has a fun and safe time. The first Hidden Gems of Central Park’s North End Tour will run on Saturday, August 29th.
