Guided Walking Tour of Central Park’s Greatest Hits with Catherine Fredman ’80 (Saturday, June 8, 9:30 a.m.)

This custom tour, “Central Park’s Greatest Hits: The Heart of the Park,” given by an experienced former Central Park Conservancy guide, will highlight some of the iconic sites and sights in Central Park, including the Model Boat Pond, the Alice in Wonderland statue, the Lake, Bethesda Terrace, Bow Bridge, and Strawberry Fields. We’ll discuss the history of our country’s first purpose-built public park and how it continues to evolve today.

The tour will start at the Samuel Morse statue, just inside the entrance at Fifth Avenue and 72nd Street, and will conclude at Strawberry Fields, at 72nd Street and Central Park West. There are some stairs, but they can be avoided. The tour will take between ninety minutes and two hours, depending on the number of questions asked. Questions are encouraged!

Catherine Fredman ’80 is a ghostwriter who has collaborated on six bestselling leadership-strategy books and memoirs. She was a volunteer tour guide with the Central Park Conservancy for twelve years. Despite having lived in New York for most of her life, she still finds new things to discover and delight in in the park.
