From a nineteenth century "castle" to a 3,500-year-old Egyptian obelisk, Central Park Conservancy guides take you on a memorable 90-minute walk through some of Central Park’s best-loved highlights.

Enjoy the sweeping vistas of the Great Lawn from Belvedere Castle. Learn how Turtle Pond got its name. And stroll east to the most ancient outdoor artifact in New York City.

The tour route involves moderate inclines and a few stairs. The tour starts and ends at Belvedere Castle (mid-Park at 79th Street).

For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review the Central Park Conservancy 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 our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
