Hallett Nature Sanctuary is the smallest of the park's three woodland landscapes. Closed to the public in 1934, the Hallett Nature Sanctuary remained mostly untouched until 2001, when Central Park Conservancy took up a more comprehensive program of restoration and maintenance. Now, visitors can use the rustic trail to view native plantings that attract birds and other wildlife. Join our guides for this exclusive tour of the Hallett Nature Sanctuary, open to visitors only on Central Park Conservancy guided tours and during limited open hours.
The tour route involves wood-chipped trails and some hills. The tour starts and ends at the Dairy Visitor Center (mid-Park between 64th and 65th Streets)
For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review the Central Park Conservancy policies carefully.

Tickets: $15 per person. Central Park Conservancy members: $10 per person.
