Central Park is well-known for its collection of outdoor sculpture, which includes war memorials, historical figures, and important works of 19th-century art — but probably the most popular statue in Central Park is that of Balto, the Alaskan sled dog. This tour, led by Central Park Conservancy Preservation Planning staff, will focus on the Park’s collection of sculptures designed for children, from statues of animals to fictional characters. With stops at the Zoo, a playground, and Conservatory Water, the tour will explore how these sculptures relate to the Park’s purpose as a place for play and wonder.

This tour is geared toward adults, although children are welcome. For a more kid-friendly exploration of Central Park’s sculptures for children, see our Discovery Walk for Families: Statues and Monuments.
