central Park Tour
HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: Strawberry Fields, Bethesda Terrace & Delacorte Theater and more!
"Nature first, second, and third -- architecture after a while," was the motto of the Central Park architects. It's hard to imagine that everything you see while running through Central Park was put there by design, but that's exactly what you'll experience on The Lower Central Park running tour. The lower portion of the park features the most ambitious landscape architecture ever implemented in the United States and magically escorts the viewer out of the city and into a peaceful park surrounding.
