Calling all tree lovers and huggers, outdoorsy folks, and environmentalists! Join the Conservancy as we embark on a top-to-bottom hike through Central Park.

On this 4.5-mile trek, Conservancy guides will lead us from 110th Street to 59th Street, providing architectural, ecological, and historical insights along the way. They’ll also highlight the environmental benefits of public parks and share information on the Indigenous communities that used to inhabit Manhattan.

Since day one, Central Park has been the city dweller’s backyard: a lush and wide-open retreat from the swarming cityscape just beyond its perimeter.
Located in Manhattan, New York City, between the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side – it is the fifth-largest park in New York City by area, covering 843 acres and is the most visited urban park in the United States, with an estimated 37.5–38 million visitors annually, as well as one of the most filmed locations in the world.
Central Park was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1963 and as a New York City scenic landmark in 1974.
