And we’re here for it!
No one can deny the beauty of Central Park on any given day, but the turn of the seasons is when the park can really take your breath away. In the spring we’re lucky enough to witness cherry blossom season, but once the temperatures start to drop and the summer comes to an end fall foliage is on all of our radars–and it’s officially peaking throughout Central Park!
According to the park, “due to variations in temperature and light, the leaves in different parts of the Park undergo their seasonal change at different times. Our expert arborists are out in the Park every day caring for the trees and letting us know where to find the best and brightest foliage,” and they’re sharing all their expert intel with us (and an interactive map for you to stay updated with the gorgeous views)!
Officially, Central Park has reached its peak stage–and it’s looking absolutely gorgeous. The Mall & Literary Walk (66th Street) is the only area of the park that’s reported to already be in its post-peak phase.
Standout locations to view the fall foliage in Central Park include:
- North Woods (101st-110th Streets)
