Sundays from July 17 – August 21, 2022

By the Harlem Meer near the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center
We’ve been to a number of these performances and it’s always been a treat to be there enjoying some A Class music performances by the northernmost water mass in Central Park. Even on the hottest of days this series doesn’t fail to delight!
Remember to visit as well the official page at the Central Park Conservancy website.
