Central Park Events This Week

For thousands of visitors and locals, Central Park is the summertime destination. You could join the flock at Sheep’s Meadow or the crowd at Summer Stage, but if you’re looking for something more intimate and unique, sign up for one of these SideTour experiences.

Roam at Dusk Sometimes the most interesting secrets are hidden in the shadows. On this sunset tour held next Thursday evening, you’ll learn tidbits about the Park’s landmarks and its lesser-known crannies, from famous film and TV settings to a secret romantic rock garden.


Sketch the Scenery Take a pause from the concrete jungle to appreciate the scenery of Central Park, and hone your artistic eye on this Saturday or Sunday afternoon field trip. Under the tutelage of an experienced art teacher, even beginners can translate 3D into 2D. You’ll learn drawing basics and unleash your creativity.


Hear its Role in Gay History On this Saturday’s Park outing, you’ll get the inside story on how the notorious Central Park Whispering Bench is connected to Oscar Wilde’s boyfriend, who served as the model for the angel of the Bethesda Terrace (and learn about her relationship to the sculptor). You’ll also discover how the Ramble got its rep as you stroll and explore an unseen side to history.


There’s much more to take advantage of this summer in Central Park. You can join SideTour to sharpen your photography skills, take yoga and go for a run, learn to survive in the wilderness, sketch Bethesda Fountain or explore nature after dark.
