Seneca Village was an important community of predominantly African-American property owners, living in an area that now makes up part of Central Park.  

Join Central Park Conservancy guides on this tour to learn about the lives of Seneca Village’s residents in the 1800s and the community’s place in pre-Central Park. Highlights of this tour include: Summit Rock, Tanner's Spring, Winterdale Arch, and sites where important residences and churches existed before the development of the Park.

The tour route involves moderate inclines and a few stairs. The tour starts and ends inside the park at 85th Street and Central Park West
