I moved to NY 3 years ago and I love this park. It is close to my apartment. It's a beautiful park with many natural animals such as birds and squirrels. I enjoy walking in this park.

We hired some Citibikes just outside the park at The Pulitzer Fountain. They are $9.95 each to hire if you get them back in half an hour. You can just about cycle the whole way round in this time then dock them for 5 mins then take them again for another hour without further payment

Walk, sit down, relax and just watch the world go by. Paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the New York Streets.

Best place to relax in the city. We took a guided bike tour to see and know more about the park and it's placed next to it. Must see!

This park is exceptionally amazing for runners, walkers, families, and dogs. I loved seeing all the NYC residents and their very well-trained and obedient dogs. It is truly amazing! The Central Park Zoo is also a very fun place , and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there.

Walk into the park to breathe-in the fresh air, especially after visiting every museum on the outskirts.

stumbling across such a huge stretch of green in a concrete jungle is a treat ! Central park for me has something to be seen everytime I visit. I would recommend first timers to take the 72nd street westside entrance and walk through the strawberry fields, imagine mosaic and spend time looking at the ever popular bow bridge.

Wonderful. We did not leave enough time. We paid for a tour around with a guy on a motorised bike it was 120 dollars but if enough time I would walk around. Lovely lake where you can hire a boat. Cycling would be great Aldo. Fountain where friends filmed and memorial for John lennon
