From a magnificent iron gate made in 1894 to a sculptural tribute to The Secret Garden, Central Park Conservancy staff takes you on a guided stroll amid thousands of trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals that bloom throughout the year. Learn about Conservatory Garden's history, design, and botanical specimens, from the professionals who care for it. This tour is bound to give visitors a new appreciation for this special space in Central Park. Route involves a few stairs.

The last Saturday of the month tour is free with registration.
