Untapped Central Park Walking Tour

Belvedere Castle

By joining this Insider’s tour, you’ll be one of the first to experience Untapped New York’s brand new walking tour of Central Park! Discover the secrets of this urban oasis and get away from the busy city in one of New York’s most popular attractions. Go off the beaten path and discover a secret ice skating rink for ladies only, take in (but don’t eat) the strawberries in Strawberry Fields, and learn about the only subject who was present for the dedication of his statue in the park (because the park rules state that you must be dead to get a statue in the park!).

You’ll also learn how the Dairy was built in order to protect children from poisonous milk supplies and discover one of New York’s best-kept historical secrets behind the Dairy itself. And, of course, learn how New York’s inferiority complex with the world’s greatest cities spurred the construction of this iconic park, and, unlike its rivals, was not a royal park but a place built for everyone to enjoy.
