Take in NYC with the locals. Pack a picnic or pick up one at a deli to enjoy this scenic expanse of green in the midst of all those neck wrenching tall buildings!

We went in the freezing period at the end of Feb/start of March. It was so beautiful, never been to a place like it. All the lakes we frozen and the snow was everywhere, but unlike in England every path had been cleared. I would love to go back in the summer or fall as I can imagine it would... More

What a beautiful place that quite simply breaks up the frenetic chaos of a trip to New York. Hired a tandem for the day and was blessed with wonderful spring sunshine - a must.

Just take a walk through the park on a Sunday afternoon. See the sights as a New Yorker. Also consider a Handsome Cab ride

An amazing oasis of green in the middle of the world's financial powerhouse, where kids and grown-ups alike are generall overcome with an unexpected sense of delight irrespective of whether they've been there before. Why wouldn't you go there?

It was a balmy sunshiney day, and I shared a buggy with a nice couple also on the tour during our free time. Our driver was from Ireland with a pleasant accent and much knowledge of the history of the area. It was pleasant and beautiful with the grass starting to green, and spring flowers in bloom. It would be... More

It is also an integral part of our living experience; for, Central Park is the host of the Shakespeare in the Park theatre series; it is the home of the... More

New York is lucky to have this extensive green space in the middle. We saw all kinds of people enjoying the early spring weather and new flowers.
