The pond was green and smelt bad. It was nice to wander through the park and avoid the crowds for a time.

The park is beautiful. I hired a bike for my tour from Bike & Roll. I paid homage to John Lennon at Strawberry Fields. You might need ear plugs to block out the busker's poor renditions of Beatle's song

It was lovey to relax in a horse drawn carriage around central park with the driver telling us about the differents monuments and iteresting facts within the park.

Knowing that New York is a big city with very few green areas, this well-known park is simply amazing. However, if you plan a visit to that park, I would suggest that you plan for a full day. The Park is extremely long (considering it is located in the middle of the city), starting at Central Park South (59th Street)... More

Who hasn't seen Central Park in the movies? It was so much fun to ride in a carriage and have the bike driver take us to where movies have been filmed. We got cupcakes from Magnolia's and hopped in the carriage for a tour. I love seeing people in this park walking, running, biking, playing catch, etc. It is endless... More

I turned up for the free 1.5 hour guided tour (free and no registration required; check Central Park's website for schedules). After a brief introduction and history to the Charles Dana Visitor Centre and its surrounding areas, we were led into the North Woods entrance. Tucked away in the expanse of Central Park is a small sanctuary that seems to... More

Hard to believe this place exists in NYC, you can almost forget you are in such a huge city. Really beautiful park with really cool landmarks that you recognize from tv shows and movies. We went twice just to take a break and get away from all the noise and traffic of the city.

We went to Central Park via subway on the last and 4th day of our visit. By this time we were turned off by the high pressure street sales attempts so avoided the pedicabs ($3 per minute) and horse carriages ($50 for 15 minutes). We used our NYPass to rent bikes and rode on the marked bike lane. It's not... More

All NYC tourists have to go to Central Park . You will have seen it in so many films and it's nice to see it for real . It was much smaller than we had expected. If you are reasonably fit , bikes are not necessary and it wasn't kept as well as e had expected. I think there some... More
