A very nice place for a walk or picnic, on weekdays there are lots of activities. Be aware that the small shops charge a lot for snacks if your a tourist

The day I was there people were doing what people do in parks all over the world -- picnicking, tossing around Frisbees, relaxing. There were also a number of groups of people singing. I applauded at the end of one of the group's songs and they asked me to join them. I didn't but was touched by the offer.

Very popular with locals visiting here on weekends and weekdays. Dont be surprised to see people seated on the grass just by themselves meditating or couples here and there. Nothing much to see just to seat and enjoy nature

There is nothing much to do here, you will find some soda/sweets/cake vendors, some amateur photo men and.....that's it.

The park was nice, but the vendor tried to keep our money when we bought a soda. Don't go here at night if you value your wallet, or your life.

It was nice to sit there and eat, in the shadow under a tree... and many locals do that aswell! You had a nice view to the city, and there were some activities arranged in the park aswell. but you should be prepared, that as a tourist in central park, you'll get a LOT of attention, and many people staring......
