Loved the zoo although it is small. The Penguins are great! The zoo closes at 4.30 pm in the winter.

This is an iconic location which does not disappoint. An area bigger than Monaco provides a green oasis in the heart of New York, and is the perfect place to get away from it all, yet to see so many New Yorkers. The space absorbs the numbers well, and there are lots of interesting nooks and crannies to explore.

Love the layout and original landscape of what Manhatten Island would have once looked like. Well maintained and family friendly. Easy to navigate with map from friendly and helpful park staff.

loved our walk through the park with my daughter on a recent trip to NYC. We enjoyed watching people skating on the rink, took a ton of photos and visited The Boathouse in Central Park although we couldn't get a reservation it was so packed but definitely worth a visit. It was a very scenic and peaceful experience and its... More

Central Park is every runners dreamland, gently hilly, gently shaded, tarmac, dirt tracks, ups and downs. A must do for every runner and also a beautiful spot to take the family just for a walk, picnic or just breath some fresh air.

I suppose I've seen too many television shows depicting it as scary or dirty or something (and I've only seen it once so I certainly don't know everything) but my experience was quite nice. We went in December and the weather was cool but not bad at all. It was... More
