    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: 59th to 110th Street Manhattan Borough, from Central Park West to 5th Avenue, New York City, NY 10022

    It’s been called the heartland of New York City, an urban Eden. Local runners call it their home-base for marathon training and weekly races organized by the New York Road Runners. Central Park is a man-made urban park that was designed and constructed from 1858 to 1873 by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. It is the most popular urban park in the United States with over 25 million visitors each year.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Central Park Zoo, 830 5th Ave, New York City, NY 10065-7001

    We will run though the entrance of the Central Park which is one of the oldest municipal zoo in the United States. It is one of the most-visited features in the park. Typically we will get a glance of the sea lions enjoying an early morning swim.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Bethesda Fountain, Midpark at 72nd St. Transverse Central Park, New York City, NY

    Back in the mid-nineteenth century New York City did not have a twin square, so Olmstead and Vaux created one in the park named Bethesda Terrace. Its a gorgeous Italian style piazza right in the middle of the park.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Strawberry Fields, John Lennon Memorial, W. Park Dr. and W. 72nd St., New York City, NY 10023

    We'll make a stop in Strawberry Fields which was John Lennon's favorite spot in Central Park. It became a memorial for the Beatles frontman 5 years after his death in 1980. We'll see the iconic Imagine Mosaic surrounded by lovely plantings and trees.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Alice in Wonderland Statue, 76th Street and 5th Avenue near Conservatory Lake, New York City, NY 10021

    We'll stop and pose for photos around the large bronze statue of Alice, the Mad Hatter & the White Rabbit from Lewis Carroll's classic tale.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Get up close and personal with nature, a good afternoon walk after a stressful day in the city. You can walk your pet, jog around and bike the whole park with your family.
