We camp to create lasting memories, connect to the natural world, and to bond with our families.  Camping affords us the opportunity to unplug from the diversions of everyday life and to laugh and play with our families.  The Urban Park Rangers celebrate the tradition of camping throughout the spring and summer and we look forward to welcoming your family.

As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
