Lovely park to meander around and discover hidden places whatever the weather! Or why not get a horse drawn carriage as a treat perfect to see the park but very pricey another option is to get the bikes and the guides which are great and can tell you about where films where taken. Dont forget to do your best Friends... More

I just took a 30 min walk in the park since it was too cold. But it definitely worths spending 2 or 3 hours here to enjoy the scenery and peace in such a busy city. Maybe I should try the horse carriage rides too.

We had a lovely walk there on a sunny, warm Sunday morning when everyone was out in cycling and running clubs or walking dogs. As time was limited we headed straight to John Lennon's memorial and then to the Alice in Wonderland sculpture where children were having so much fun.Horse and carriages were meandering around the park and people having...

You can spend the whole day enjoying Central Park. Especially in the Spring and Fall. Fun to walk, ride bikes, or even take the bike taxi through the park. John Lennon Memorial and the Alice and Wonderland statue are a must see. Nice little eateries surrounding park. Other activities and concerts are held at the Park. Love this beautiful, iconic...

You need to walk Central Park and get away from the high rises for a while to appreciate a calmer setting. It gives you the chance to breathe and slow down.

Lovely family orientated area of peace and tranquility right in the north of Manhattan. Could spend days just waking around it or join in with the joggers or cyclists running around the purpose built roads

We walked through the park and only saw a small portion of it, but it was lovely. It looked like there would be a lot to do in the summer!
