Nothing like a break from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. You can find some peace and quiet here.

Walked through the park many times and immediately felt stress relief 😊. Walked to lunch at Tavern on the Green and walked to the holiday market at Columbus Circle. Great to be away from the busy streets!

We saw Central Park via a pedicab just for the laughs. Shockingly crappy bike, and our rider earned every cent. We haggled down from $135 to $55 and even got him to drop us at 5th avenue afterwards. One hour tour... Lots of photo opportunities, and handy having someone to take the pics. Great morning out... Just do it.,

We had a lovely few days wandering around Central Park and only saw three quarters of it. It is a sanctuary in all the chaos of New York. We watched street preformers, had a horse and buggy ride (hint ask the price before you take a ride we were charged $110!!! rookie mistake) and best of all ice skated!! We... More

We love Central Park. The views of the buildings surrounding it are amazing. It is an oasis of calm in a bustling city. The horse and carriage ride is great fun.

I have owned horses for decades and the Carriage Ride horses are some of the best cared for horses I have ever seen. It was chilly in November and they were blanketed and protected from the cold. They were well fed. I noticed they were provided food and water regularly. All looked happy and healthy. The problem we have today... More

Central Park is fabulous, right in the heart of the city. It is great to walk around, skate or take a bike. The horse and carriages are nice but expensive.

Central Park is unique! Simply the atmosphere. Crazy Mayor D,'Blazio is bowing to political baloney and may remove horse drawn carriages...take one if you can.

I loved Central Park. We saw some of it in the daytime. We rented a nighttime carriage ride which was a mistake because the park doesn't have enough lighting. We couldn't see very much.
