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.

Please avoid wildlife and make sure your pets have up-to-date distemper and rabies vaccines. Keep your pet on a leash, especially during dawn and dusk.

Please call 311 or notify an on-site Parks employee if you see a sick or injured animal.

If you are bitten, wash the wound with soap and water immediately. Call your doctor to see if you need tetanus or rabies shots, and call 311 to report the bite.
