Hop in the pedicab a couple of blocks south of Central Park to begin this fun 1- or 2-hour tour. With views in every direction, don't forget your camera. The park, which opened in 1857, was designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead. Despite its organic natural look, the park was completely designed anew and wasn't carved out of already existing nature.
Learn about the history of the park as your driver pedals through through this verdant landscape. See some of the most popular sites in the park, including Strawberry Hill, the Great Meadow, Sheep Meadow, Literary Walk and the legendary restaurant Tavern on the Green. You might recognize several parts of the park as it has been the setting for a plethora of famous films, including including the Naumberg Bandshell from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Wollman Rink from Serendipity.
Need to stretch your legs or stop to take a photo? No problem. Just alert the pedicab driver and hop out of the pedicab. Don't be surprised if you find people taking pictures of you, too, as you whiz by in your quirky little pedicab!
After exploring the park, you’ll return to your Midtown Manhattan departure point, just a block from the high-end shops of Fifth Avenue.
