Central Park Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt

By NYC Social (other events)

6 Dates Through Oct 21, 2023

Experience Central Park in a whole new way with our (adults only) Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt! It is a fun way to meet new people or hang out with familiar friends in NYC’s Urban Oasis! If you don’t have a team we will set you up on one as you set out to find fun and historical things that are already part of the park.

You will also be looking for the hidden mini pumkins along the way! Following the hunt you can join members for a drink or something to eat at a local pub or restaurant.

Covid-19 Protocols:
We will take temperatures when you arrive.
Event limited to 30 people so there is space for everyone to be safe.
Face masks must be worn while within close proximity..

How it works:

* Register for a ticket. Come alone or with friends and meet at Tavern on the Green at 11:00am. We will set up the teams (teams of 5 only) If you have a team let us know.

*Each team will have 2 hours to find as many clues at they can inside the park (clues will be in historical markers, wildlife, street performers, tourists, fountains, statues, bridges and hidden secrets)

*There will also be over 100 mini pumpkins hidden along the way (in bushes, behind benches, under statues, and in the Ramble). Each pumpkin will be worth extra points for the teams that find them

*At the end of the 2 hours the group will return to the starting point to see which group has uncovered the most clues to win prizes!
