    What to Expect
    “Nature first, second, and third -- architecture after a while,” was the motto of the Central Park architects. It’s hard to imagine that everything in Central Park was put there by design, but that’s exactly what you’ll experience on The Lower Central Park running tour. The lower portion of the park features the most ambitious landscape architecture ever implemented in the United States and magically escorts the viewer out of the city and into a peaceful park surrounding.

    Nice, leisurely run through Central Park with Michael, my guide. He was patient, encouraging and flexible with my pace throughout our 5 mile trek. I would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in burning some calories while visiting New York, regardless of age or skill level.

    Beth was absolutely fantastic. Got an absolutely top quality tour (even though I was the only one there) that covered the history of the park, as well as NYC more generally. Would highly recommend. Thank you Beth!
