About the Central Park Sightseeing Pedicab Tour
The prospect of exploring Central Park under your own steam can be daunting. After all, it’s a sprawling 843 acres, measuring 2.4 miles from top to bottom. Central Park Sightseeing has the solution: a Park Pedicab Tour.
The tour is especially popular with multi-generational families and groups with varied skill levels, because it offers the chance to tour the park together, no matter what your athletic prowess. And, if you have limited time in NYC, a Pedicab Tour makes it easy to fit in a park visit, because it’s available for both one or two hours. Led by professionally licensed guides, the tour covers two miles of park grounds, along tree-lined paths and past sloping lawns.
The Pedicab Tour focuses on the lower half of the park, and highlights along the way include the Mall, a handsome walkway shaded by American elms, and Strawberry Fields, which features the Imagine mosaic, a tribute to John Lennon, who lived with his wife Yoko Ono in the nearby Dakota Apartments. The Pedicab Tour also passes the Victorian-Gothic Dairy and the Carousel, which is one of the country’s largest merry-go-rounds, with 57 hand-carved horses.
Traveling as a couple? Go for a romantic pedicab ride, especially in the cooler months, when you can snuggle under a blanket, rolling under the park’s brilliant fall foliage.
