We ended up going to Central Park two times during our stay. We took our two boys (13/15) on a 40 minute carriage ride and then did a bike ride around the entire park the next day followed by drinks and snacks at Tavern on the Green. The park is so full of life and energy. Such a great place... More

We visited central park on a hot summer’s day. We hired some bikes and biked around central park at our leisure. There is so much to see and do but the best part is, it’s so peaceful, you can get away from it all and just watch the world go by. From lakes to a swimming pool, musicians and even... More

A visit to Central Park is a must on your list with lots to see and do here. Everything from joggers paths to grassy areas for picnics, the zoo, horse drawn carriage rides, fountains and well known sites from the movies. It is a nice escape from the craziness of the city, we love it there.

Central Park is so beautiful. Really nice to walk around, bike or even pay for a little tour. All tour guides are information savvy and greatly enjoyable. My personal favorite spot is next to the skating rink on a sunny winter day. It gets so comfortable under the sun and it really is fun to watch other people skate.

The beauty and size of Central Park was amazing. We walked there from our hotel with a picnic lunch in our backpacks. My daughter, granddaughters, and friend and I could not have asked for a better day to be in NYC. It was cold in Minnesota but close to 80 sunny degrees in NY! My daughter knew just where to... More

I loved that the park is so well used. It has something for everyone, walking, biking, runners and picnic lovers. We walked through and had drinks at Tavern on The Green. Everything was lovely.

If you are visiting New York, Central Park is a must. You have probably seen parts of this park in literally hundreds of TV programmes and movies. A visit is essential. (I prefer it in the summer, but winter is good too!!)
