Even in the freezing cold we had a nice relatively quiet walk through the park this afternoon. If you have time and are able take time to stroll through the park.

The sheer size of the park was astounding and we found ourselves getting alittle lost... We took a stroll inside the park and just as we were walking, it began to snow! It was a beautiful sight and made the walk much more romantic. It was evident it has snowed a few days prior to our arrival in NYC but... More

Park is huge covering a major portion of midtown manhattan. It's great for jogging, biking, picnicking, or good old fashioned people watchimg. The grounds are beautiful and safe and are perfect to go explore with a significant other.

my main reason for wanting to come here was for my husband to visit the strawberry fields memorial for John Lennon, he found it very emotional but says he didn't like the crowdsthat seemed to be there all the time. there was some lovely walks in the park and quite a few official guides walking around eager to help visitors.

New York is not just about the skyscrapers it is also about the amazing nature landscape just right in the center. Definetely you won't miss it. So fun to come here with friends or even alone, sometimes there are events held in the park and you will never be bored there, trust me.

Spent a few wonderful hours here on a very brisk early morning. It was gorgeous! We started in Strawberry fields and meandered teaking in all the iconic scenes! Very spread out, we had fun trying not to get too lost and ended up having to grab a cab back to the hotel.

This is the place to be. I highly recommend you hire a tour agency or at least contact one to plan your visit. So much to see and do in Central Park you will need several days of visits to really take it all in and at different times of the year. When you go to New York, you must... More
