Watson Adventures’ Secrets of Central Park Scavenger HuntCentral Park (Central Park, New York, NY) Map it
See the best of the park and discover places you might never otherwise visit. Highlights include a bird sanctuary (find out why birds won’t go near it), the Carousel (featured in Catcher in the Rye), the Dairy (yes, kids could once get fresh milk there from farms outside the city), Strawberry Fields (almost named for Bing Crosby!), the Sheep Meadow (and, nearby, the former nightspot for the sheep, now Tavern on the Green), the Mall (intended to be the only straight path in the park), Bethesda Fountain and the Lake (made from a swamp). Along the way, you’ll uncover hidden messages, secret symbols, writing in the sky, movie and TV locations, hidden history and Balto the wonder dog.
