Your fully guided walking tour begins in Grand Army Plaza in Central Park South right across the street from the famed Plaza Hotel.
Learn about how and why the park was created and the obstacles that the builders faced in this huge undertaking. Make your way into the park and pass the Central Park Zoo (recently featured in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and the Wollman Rink.
See the Sheep Meadow (and learn if sheep really grazed there) and visit the world-famous Tavern on the Green. Stroll into the heart of the park and visit the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace, The Boathouse, and Belvedere Castle. Parade through the beautiful Shakespeare Garden and learn about the Delacorte Theatre as you walk pass the lake (where you might even spot turtles during nice weather).
Stop and see Strawberry Field, a memorial to John Lennon and snap a photo of the Imagine Mosaic. As you work your way out of the park, end the 2-hour tour at The Dakota, a luxury apartment built in 1884 and the former home of Lauren Bacall, Leonard Bernstein, Judy Garland, and John Lennon.
