Central Park Walking Tour
The Hidden Gems of Central Park’s North End
Explore the lesser known part of Central Park
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. We will discuss events that occurred nearby spanning three centuries. Locate where encampments from two wars were situated and, during a third, the site of the former convent where injured soldiers were treated. We will learn about the surprising history of the Block House, a War of 1812 Fort predating the Park. Also discover a remnant from one of the grandest mansions to have ever existed in New York City which leads into the spectacular Conservatory Garden which we will explore as well. 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.Book Now
