The Central Park Conservancy offers free walking tours highlighting several areas of the park.

No reservations required (unless you come with a group of seven or more people). Just show up at the designated spot at least 5 minutes before the scheduled start time. The tours last about an hour.

There are over a dozen tours to choose from, featuring scenic spots, history, park architecture and monuments.
