We took a horse and carriage through the park which was amazing! The staff that man the carriages are very knowledgeable and point out all the famous sights. Cost was $50 for a 20min ride and $100 for a more comprehensive ride into all the nice attractions of the park. Don't forget a tip for the rider!

I love the outdoors and love to run. I had no idea there was such a beautiful place in a City. Now my business trips are more enjoyable because I get to run in a pretty friendly atmosphere. I could not believe the amount of runners and just about every weekend there is a race. I'm not a City girl... More

Really buzzy with a great mix of spaces (grassed area, boating lake, wooded areas and areas for street performers). Also the bikes for hire at or near the various entrances were great A must visit in NYC!

there are three major routes, I recommend the 6.1 miles to get a beautiful view from NYC. Better run early in the morning to avoid masses of people.

A park every city should have. Central Park is the place to be for every kind of person. If you like to jog, stroll or just have a picnic its the ideal place. A huge park in the heart of manhattan even has carriage rides you can take for a small fee.

Lots to do here! Bike,walk see a ton of sights! Guided or not your pick this is an amazing park. History and landscaping combined to make this place really New York! If your not a walker or a biker follow the contours of the park via a tour bus.

Unfortunately we only had about three hours to spend in a park that should take a day at least to just skip around. We picked out a great walk and what we say was simply beautiful. You need to keep close to the great skyline as well as go deep into the park to experience both spectrums of this expansive... More

Coming from someone who lives in a city all the time, it's nice to see a giant park in the middle of one. It is an amazing escape if you need to leave the city life for a while.
