The Secrets of Central Park Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Leave the city while staying in Manhattan

Kids and adults team up to roam the paths and fields of the park below 72nd Street while answering tricky, humorous questions. To score points, you’ll have to find Stuart Little, stick your tongue out at a rude animal, learn the motto of a hidden eagle, decipher a secret code by the pond seen in Home Alone 2, spot Cupid at the carousel, unscramble a message in the sky, and find a witch turned to stone, to name just a few of the highlights.

You don’t need to know the park at all for this scavenger hunt. You just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and good teamwork. You’ll be surprised at just how many cool, new things you’ll discover.

This scavenger hunt is a great activity for a birthday party, school field trip, summer-camp outing, family reunion…and any other kind of gathering where you want kids and adults to have fun together. 

Recommended for ages 7 and up. Each team must include at least one adult.

Private hunt option: add the zoo!
