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.

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.

Exercising with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestow health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors 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. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

Join us to watch the tournament!

In the 17th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament, three wheelchair softball teams sponsored by Major League Baseball franchises compete: the New England Rolling Red Sox, New York Mets and New York Yankees.

Wheelchair softball is very similar to slow pitch softball, with some exceptions geared toward the wheelchair user. Players compete on hard surfaces and use a bigger ball, which allows the wheelchair user to catch the ball in one hand without a glove. Various teams will compete to be the champions of this tournament. Players, using sports wheelchairs, are comprised of both men and women.

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.

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with NYC Parks and New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment for this free film!

Based on the book by Alberto Granado, this Spanish language award-winning biopic tells the story of the iconic Ernesto “Che” Guevara (Gael Garcia Bernal) as a young man travelling across South America with his friend Alberto Granado (Rodrigo De la Serna,) by motorcycle. From Brazil to Peru they witness great economic disparities in South America and the exploitation of labor by wealthy industrialists. When they reach a leper colony in Peru, Ernesto's values have changed so much that he joins the lepers, forgetting his own health and birthing his social activism.
