A fun site to hold a team building scavenger hunt in Central Park
Event Description: An attractive site for a corporate team building event, with 843 acres of classic architecture, gorgeous statuary and sports, educational and performance facilities, New York’s Central Park (the first landscaped public park in the United States) is a one-of-a-kind wonderland in the heart of the city. Your Dr. Clue treasure hunt runs from roughly 64th Street up to 75th and is the center of the action, including the Mall, Sheep Meadow and Bethesda Terrace.
Location History: Its creators, Frederick Law Olmsted, the park’s superintendent at the time, and Calvert Vaux, an English-born architect, needed over 20,000 workers to transform the area into what it is today. Everyone has their own favorite part of Central Park, whether it’s the zoo, the Castle, the Tavern on the Green restaurant or the ice skating rink.
During your corporate team building treasure hunt… you may encounter a statue dedicated to Lewis Carroll’s famous heroine; a mosaic remembering a fallen Beatle; a memorial to sled dogs; and so much more.
Not every corporate team building program is the same. Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions. Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions. Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology. Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.
Here’s Dr. Clue himself, Dave Blum, sharing his thoughts about this teambuilding scavenger hunt:
