Premium Tour: Bird Sanctuary to Castle
1/7
DESCRIPTION:
Now it gets interesting. This full two hour tour builds on everything experienced in the Deluxe Loop, and then we go further. We explore the Ramble, the bird sanctuary of Central Park. This was the first area of the park constructed and it is designed to be an idilic natural landscape. Over 200 species of birds, the gorge, streams, rock outcroppings. You will feel as if walking in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains. On this leg of the tour we completely forget we are in New York City. We then ride north by the Museum of Natural History, Seneca Village and Diana Ross playground. Our destination is Belvedere Castle, the literal high point of the park. Here we will climb to the top to get a 360° view of the park’s delights including the Great Lawn, the Reservoir, even the Delacorte Theater where they hold Shakespeare in the Park. Riding back down south we will visit the Lady’s Pavilion on the North end of the lake. There we will explore rock outcroppings for stunning views of the new mega sky scrapers along the south end of the park. This will be a day you will never forget!
