Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Coined the 'wild garden' by designer Frederick Law Olmsted, the Ramble offers visitors a tranquil spot to meander along winding paths and discover hidden forest gardens. This truly is a place for the urban explorer to escape the city and get lost in nature.

Join us for a tour of this serene 36-acre woodland, led by Central Park Conservancy guides. Highlights of this tour include: the Lake, Bow Bridge, Ramble Arch, Oak Bridge, the Gill, and Azalea Pond.

The tour route involves hills, stairs, wood-chipped trails, and uneven terrain. The tour starts at Belvedere Castle (mid-Park at 79th Street) ends at Oak Bridge (West Side of the Ramble between 77th and 78th Streets).

For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review Central Park Conservancy's policies carefully. Groups of seven or more must schedule a custom tour three weeks in advance at more information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions.
