Central Park-Dairy Visitor Center and Gift Shop
The Dairy is a Gothic Revival structure located between the Wildlife Center and the Carousel and overlooks Wollman Rink. Designed by Calvert Vaux and built in 1870 as a dispensary of milk for poor families, it now serves as one of the park’s information centers and houses exhibits about the design, architecture and history of the park. Of special interest is a 12-foot scale model of the park. The Dairy offers educational events, tours for adults, concerts and exhibits and a computerized info kiosk for kids.
- Gift Shops
The Dairy serves as the official Central Park gift store with maps, guides, history books and a line of mugs, key chains, T-shirts, and caps especially designed for the Central Park Conservancy.
