Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness, and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

Contemporary dance company Drastic Action will present “Dis/Location (Fort Tryon),” a site-specific dance exploring the immigrant experience. The dance is rooted in artistic director, Aviva Geismar’s, experience as the child of a Holocaust refugee and in interviews she conducted with NYC immigrants from all over the world. The dance explores the trauma of leaving home, the awkwardness of trying to fit into a new culture and the rituals we use to create a sense of home.

“Geismar’s dead on understanding of social realities is like a poke in the ribs… In life and in Geismar’s dances comedy and tragedy can be hard to sort out.” Tom Strini, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

This project is sponsored by the PSC-CUNY Research Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Fort Tyron Park Trust.

"Dis/Location (Fort Tryon)” is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

Contemporary dance company Drastic Action will present “Dis/Location (Fort Tryon),” a site-specific dance exploring the immigrant experience. The dance is rooted in artistic director, Aviva Geismar’s, experience as the child of a Holocaust refugee and in interviews she conducted with NYC immigrants from all over the world. The dance explores the trauma of leaving home, the awkwardness of trying to fit into a new culture and the rituals we use to create a sense of home.

“Geismar’s dead on understanding of social realities is like a poke in the ribs… In life and in Geismar’s dances comedy and tragedy can be hard to sort out.” Tom Strini, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

This project is sponsored by the PSC-CUNY Research Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Fort Tyron Park Trust.

"Dis/Location (Fort Tryon)” is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

Contemporary dance company, Drastic Action, will present “Dis/Location (Fort Tryon),” a site-specific dance exploring the immigrant experience. The dance is rooted in artistic director, Aviva Geismar’s, experience as the child of a Holocaust refugee and in interviews she conducted with NYC immigrants from all over the world. The dance explores the trauma of leaving home, the awkwardness of trying to fit into a new culture and the rituals we use to create a sense of home.

“Geismar’s dead on understanding of social realities is like a poke in the ribs… In life and in Geismar’s dances comedy and tragedy can be hard to sort out.” Tom Strini, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

This project is sponsored by the PSC-CUNY Research Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Fort Tyron Park Trust.

"Dis/Location (Fort Tryon)” is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

Did you know that the north end of Central Park has a rich history that includes the British having been stationed here during the American Revolution, and American troops stationed there during the War of 1812? Recent archaeological and historical investigations in the area have revealed even more information about how the "Fort Landscape" was used in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, before this area was part of Central Park. This season, join our guides and learn the history of this part of the park, get insight into the studies in the area, and appreciate the recent restorations undertaken by the Conservancy.

Highlights of this tour include McGowan's Pass, Fort Clinton, Nutter's Battery, and the Harlem Meer.

The tour route involves many hills and stairs, and some uneven terrain. The tour starts at Charles A. Dana Discovery Center (inside the park at 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues), and ends near the park perimeter at 106th Street and Fifth Avenue.

For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review the Central Park Conservancy's policies carefully.

Groups of seven or more must schedule a custom tour three weeks in advance at tours@centralparknyc.org.For more information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions.
