To inspire New Yorkers and visitors to visit Central Park during Earth Day, CityListen is offering free downloads of Central Park: An Urban Marvel.
This audio walking tour offers a guided walk through Central Park while focusing on the history of its design, construction and evolution. For the week of Earth Day, April 20- 24, the tour, which normally sells for $7.95, will be available for free online.
“Central Park is the most visited city park in the United States, making it the perfect place to celebrate Earth Day and gain an appreciation for nature and sustainability. While Central Park is almost entirely man-made and, in fact, stands as a monumental achievement in urban landscaping and design, the park is a sanctuary to millions of New Yorkers and an oasis of nature featuring a number of unique species of flora and fauna.”
Once downloaded, the tour can be transferred to an iPod or MP3 player and will not expire. A PDF map for the tour can also be downloaded from the website.
The full tour experience can take 2+ hours and additional time for stops tour goers take between sites.
