Over 320 feature Hollywood films have been shot here on location, making it the single most popular “on location” movie spot in the world. And it’s no coincidence- Central Park was carefully designed to be beautifully aesthetic, with nature scenes of streams, ponds, bridges, and hills unfolding around every curve. Your tour route follows many of these well-known Hollywood productions. The park borders many famous luxury apartment buildings that are home to celebrities who will be discussed on tour.

One of New York City’s greatest treasures, Central Park is considered to be the personal "backyard" of the many New Yorkers who enjoy a great variety of recreational activities in the park. Central Park is where city dwellers go to decompress from the stress of urban life, and every year the city celebrates many of its greatest traditions in the park. In addition to being the location of the finish line of 50,000 runner-strong New York City Marathon, it is the home to many charitable events and corporate race challenges, such as the Susan G. Komen Race for The Cure. Summer activities in the park include free concerts and live performances by the New York Philharmonic and Metropolitan Opera, as well as contemporary music and theatrical performances at Summer Stage and at the Shakespeare in the Park Festival. Winter activities include ice skating on the famed Wollman Rink. There is literally never a time when there is nothing to do in this great community resource.
