New York City: Central Park Self-Guided Walking Tour

2. New York City: Central Park Self-Guided Walking Tour

Discover the sights and history of Central Park on a self-guided walking tour via an app on your phone. Enjoy some moments of peace and tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Begin your audio and GPS tour and make your first stop at the famous Central Park Zoo, home to everything from monkeys to pythons to penguins. You’ll also get a chance to see the whimsical Delacourte Clock. Then, continue on to the statue of Balto, and find out why a dog from Alaska has a statue in New York. After that, it’s on to the beautiful tree-lined Mall and Literary Walk. Hear the stories — and the controversies — behind all of the statues of famous literary and historical figures that line the walk. Arrive at the Naumburg Bandshell, where famous speakers, from Martin Luther King to Fidel Castro, have given speeches over the years. Then, step onto Bethesda Terrace, a wonder of Italianate architecture offering stupendous views of the park. It’s also been the filming site for plenty of major hits through the years, from Home Alone 2 to The Avengers. After, follow the route to the Hans Christian Andersen monument honoring the author of children’s classics like “The Little Mermaid.” The tour through the fantastical side of the park continues at the Alice in Wonderland sculpture, burnished to a shine from years of kids clambering all over it. Art lovers will adore the next stop: the Metropolitan Museum of Art. From there, pay a visit to the Jacky Kennedy Reservoir at the park’s heart. Stroll around this picturesque pool and learn to identify iconic buildings in New York’s skyline. Then, stop by the Great Lawn, which has featured superstars like Elton John and Bon Jovi and continues to be a major gathering place for folks looking to enjoy a little natural serenity. Later, see an actual castle and a Shakespearean garden before moving on to the Strawberry Fields memorial commemorating music legend John Lennon. And you can’t come to Central Park without visiting the famous Carousel, so you’ll stop there and hear about its history. Finally, exit the park at Columbus Circle, a major hub of the city not too far from where your tour began. The tour concludes here.

What people are saying about Bethesda Terrace and Fountain

exc the experience! a genius Alex Illaramendi, the guide. He knew a lot and shared everything ... very interesting to go around the city like that and get to know it. On the other hand, we went to Harlem to take the bike tour that afternoon and there was no tour and the one that was available the next day was in English and that was not communicated in the Go Explorer pass app that we lost to use.

The park is forbidden to the car, it is very pleasant to explore it by bike. Abdul, our guide brought a plus by his kindness, and his comments and anecdotes. Really to do

Alex was our guide, amazing! Loved it.

My husband and I took our 13 year old granddaughter for the weekend in New York. The 2 hour bike tour was one of our highlights. Wonderful.

We loved it! Dan was an excellent guide. This is a great way to tour Central Park.

Daniel was awesome. He gave us an expected New York City welcome. Loved it!
