Walk through the world's most famous urban park at your own pace and learn its rich history by taking this in-app audio tour!
This huge 843-acre park is the first landscaped park in the U.S. You will walk through lush gardens and blooming meadows, feel the tranquility of picturesque lakes, rustic bridges, antique arches, and statues. On your way, you may participate in various outdoor activities from biking, hiking, ice-skating, or fishing to listening to a live concert or a performance.
Your tour will start at the chateau-style Dakota building on Central Park West, not only known for once being owned by one of the U.S. Presidents, but also as the place of the tragic death of John Lennon. Having visited his memorial, you will continue along an iconic picnic spot, the Sheep Meadow, and enjoy the views of the waterfront. You will be surprised to find the animal natural habitats recreated by the unique zoos in urban environments.
Then you will discover the hidden gems and best-kept secrets of Central Park: brand new Women's Rights Pioneers Monument in Literary Mall, North Woods with a magnificent waterfall, and Conservatory Garden with its dancing fountains.
Your eyes will linger on wonderous birds and unique old trees while walking along the Ramble and Cherry Hill. You will see the famous Central Park rocks and climb them if you want.
The tour ends at Harlem Meer, a spot where you can observe wildlife, relax, and set up a picnic.
