Hear the story behind New York City’s park in the sky. Join us for a free tour led by High Line Docents, knowledgeable volunteer guides who offer you an insider’s perspective on the park’s history, design, and landscape.

The starting point for all tours is up on the park at the Gansevoort Street entrance. Our 90-minute tours that take place between May and October end at 30th Street; 45-minute tours that take place between November and April end at 23rd Street; however, some docents may choose to continue the tour up to 30th Street for interested visitors.

No more than twenty people will be permitted on the tour, there are no reservations, and spots are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

In light of additional concerns surrounding COVID, our docents may request that you wear a mask to join the tour. We ask all tour participants to respect the wishes of our volunteer docents and accommodate these requests.

Tours are subject to cancellation due to weather. Check @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates prior to arriving at the park. If you have mobility concerns, please check the elevator status page before your visit.

If you are interested in a private tour of the High Line, please request a tour time and date at least two weeks in advance.
