The Plaza Hotel, a landmark hotel in New York City, invites families to explore another New York City landmark – Central Park. Initiated in 1954 following the success of Kay Thompson’s book Eloise, the Plaza Hotel has re-launches the Tricycle Garage. This summer, hotel guests are able to rent Radio Flyer tricycles, bicycles and scooters to explore Central Park and some of the city’s most popular sights.
The Plaza Boutique’s Tricycle Garage offers kids of all ages the chance to experience New York City in a fun, whimsical way. Kids who are usually too tired to walk will discover a burst of energy when shooting through the park on a red Radio Flyer scooter or a pretty in pink tricycle. There are even bicycles for adults too so the whole family can enjoy a ride in the park. Rental fees range from $20.00 for two hours and up to $40 for a whole day and include the use of a bike helmet. Bike racks and numbered license plates are free to guests at The Plaza but others can use them for a fee of $0.15 a day (that’s $3.00 a month).
Bikes are available on a first come, first served basis and can be reserved at the Tricycle Garage but guests at the Plaza Hotel are given priority. The Plaza Hotel offers families a whole new way to experience Central Park.
