Told through the eyes of a fourth wall-aware busker narrator, named Birdie, the musical series tells the story of the Tillerman-Hunter family who live in Edendale Castle in Central Park. Patriarch Owen (the dorky manager of the park), his wife Paige (a journalist always stuck with writing fluff pieces and hopes to write a real story), their daughter Molly (loves drawing comics about herself and a boy she has a crush on) and their son Cole (an emotional young boy who loves animals).
Their lives change when an elderly heiress and entrepreneur named Bitsy Brandenham and her frequently-abused assistant Helen plot to buy up all the land in Central Park and turn it into more condominiums, shopping stores and restaurants as a way of getting back at the world. The Tillermans must also deal with their issues and save the park.
