Fondly recollect the early decades of baseball, recall ladies riding sidesaddle along the bridle paths, envision the thrill of ice skating and boating on the Lake, cross the finish line of the NYC Marathon, and more.  Learn how tastes in recreation have changed since the mid-19th century and how the Park has been changed to mirror those tastes.

Groups of seven or more people should call (212) 360-2726 or email to schedule a custom tour.

Accessibility level: Easy to negotiate; paths and few stairs - mostly accessible to people with disabilities.
