Join NYC Parks and the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for a free film!

Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) clash over differing philosophies about what kind of heroism is needed to protect the world, while the public they're defending is becoming increasingly mindful of the damage that superheroes and masked vigilantes cause. However, the duo are soon forced to confront an even greater threat created by nefarious billionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also co-stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred the butler, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Author: Jack Rodgers

Did you know that the north end of Central Park has a rich history that includes the British having been stationed here during the American Revolution, and American troops stationed there during the War of 1812? Recent archaeological and historical investigations in the area have revealed even more information about how the "Fort Landscape" was used in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, before this area was part of Central Park. This season, join our guides and learn the history of this part of the park, get insight into the studies in the area, and appreciate the recent restorations undertaken by the Conservancy.

Highlights of this tour include McGowan's Pass, Fort Clinton, Nutter's Battery, and the Harlem Meer.

The tour route involves many hills and stairs, and some uneven terrain. The tour starts at Charles A. Dana Discovery Center (inside the park at 110th Street between Fifth and Lenox Avenues), and ends near the park perimeter at 106th Street and Fifth Avenue.

For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review the Central Park Conservancy's policies carefully.

Groups of seven or more must schedule a custom tour three weeks in advance at tours@centralparknyc.org.For more information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions.

Our free package of a Learn to Ride – Adults class and a Bike Practice Session are designed to get you riding with confidence and competence after just two classes, two hours each, a week apart.

In order to really take advantage of our Learn to Ride class, participants should practice their new skills soon after. Since that may prove difficult for someone who doesn’t have a bike or a safe place to practice, we have packaged together our proven Learn to Ride – Adults class with our new Bike Practice Session, scheduled one week apart at some of our Bike Ed Centers.

Learn to Ride students learn how to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer a bike, as well as adjust a helmet for proper fit. Most people learn to ride in one session, but even if they don’t, they’ll leave equipped with an easy, low-stress way to teach themselves—or, they can join us for another free class!

Join us for a journey back in time to the elite "Bond Street area", home to Astors, Vanderbilts, Delanos, and the Tredwells, who lived in the Merchant’s House.

You’ll walk the footsteps of these wealthy mercantile families whose elegant Federal mansions once lined the tranquil cobblestone streets. Our tour passes by iconic landmarks such as the imposing Colonnade Row, the Public Theater, and The Cooper Union, where Lincoln gave his "right makes might" speech. On the bustling Astor Place, imagine the drama of events that led to the Opera House riot of 1849, among the bloodiest in American history.

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 in front of the José Martí statue (Central Park South at Sixth Avenue)

For weather cancellation and other ticket policies, please review the Central Park Conservancy policies carefully.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

<![CDATA[Tai Chi at The High Line]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/09/13/tai-chi http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/09/13/tai-chi Date: September 13, 2016

Don't miss this amazing opportunity to discover a new discipline and find balance and relaxation in our beautiful park! Join our neighbors from the Taoist Tai Chi Society for an introductory practice of the different moves included in the basic Tai Chi set. Tai Chi is learned by doing: the instructor will demonstrate, then perform the moves with the class, and finally watch the students as they repeat them. Movements are believed to help calm the emotions, focus the mind, and strengthen the immune system.

People of all ages and conditions can learn.

RSVP here!

In the event of rain, Tai Chi will be moved into the 14th Street passage, on the High Line at 14th Street.

About Taoist Tai Chi Society
The Taoist Tai Chi Society is the largest non-profit Tai Chi organization in the world, practicing in 26 countries. Taoist Tai Chi is an exercise for health and relaxation, and can be practiced by people of any age or fitness level. Developed by the Taoist Society's founder, Master Moy Lin Shin, a 108 move "set" is specifically designed to improve health. Stretching, full range of motion, and the continuous turning of the spine distinguish this art at the physical level. Join us and learn the first few moves.
