Central Park Tour
Central Park is more than just a park. On its territory is located so much that this place is worthy of a separate tour.
Little about the park
Central Park was created more than 150 years ago on the site of a terrible swampy wasteland with an area of almost 4 square kilometers. The clearing workers even saved a few boulders from there — today they stand there, in memory of the past.
The park was broken not just for beauty, although for her too. The original goal was to create America’s first publicly accessible park space, where people of different races and social situations could relax and relax together.
Especially for this, the track schemes were developed, for example: paths of horse-drawn carriages and pedestrians constantly intersected so that well-off citizens did not feel special, and the poor were disadvantaged.
Central Park has long been one of the symbols of the city. Over the years of its existence, he experienced both desolation and triumphs. Today it is a blooming oasis, without which it is impossible to imagine New York.
It seems to many that this is not a garden, settled in the middle of the city, but a city lined up around the garden.
We will talk about everything related to Central Park: how it was created, who had to be driven out of their homes, and how landscape artists fought for the right to participate in the project. And a lot more about how the park is arranged - where underground roads are hidden, how the soil and plants were brought in and how the first public source of drinking water in the USA was carried out.
But not only is this included in the excursion program. We will not forget about the beauty — the most picturesque corners, the most fun entertainment and iconic places also do not escape from sight.
Namely: the refined Shakespeare Garden, the stunning Belvedere Castle, John Lennon's Strawberry Glade, the best of its kind Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cleopatra's Egyptian Obelisk, literary alley, criminal park “labyrinths” and other locations.
Our guides know all the hidden corners of Central Park and make sure that you spend unforgettable moments. After such an interesting boardwalk, even just wallowing on the lawns of Central Park will be especially nice.
