    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.
    OFFERED: Thursdays at 7 am
    DISTANCE: 4 Miles/6.4 K
    TERRAIN: Sidewalk, Park Paths
    ELEVATION: Some Hills
    TOUR DURATION: Approx. 1.5 hours
    MEETING LOCATION: USS Maine Monument in Columbus Circle (Entrance to Central Park at 59th Street and 8th Avenue)

    Had a lovely leisurely guided run through Central Park with Jill. Lots of information about the park and a thoroughly enjoyable run. Will try and catch another one of their tours.
