The Dairy

The Dairy in Central Park is a general visitor information center that provides the public with information on the design of Central Park, events and programs. It also features an interactive touch-screen kiosk providing general information about the park. The Dairy also serves as a gift shop that offers maps, guides, history books, and a line of mugs, key chains, T-shirts, and caps especially designed for the Central Park Conservancy. The Central Park Dairy was originally intended as a source of fresh milk for children in the late 19th century. It was built in 1870 in the Victorian Gothic style, in particular its windows and spires. The building's beams and ceilings, however, are more reminiscent of those found in a barn. The Dairy is open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Tuesday through Sunday.
