Our favorite part of New York- we made time to go there every day. Central Park is absolutely stunning. This was our first visit and we expected the mile-a-minute pace on the streets. It was that, times 100! That's why our visits to the park were so wonderful. A chance to pause in an amazing Oasis, but still take in... More

We did not spend a great deal of time in Central Park but what time we did spend was wonderfully relaxing & an escape from the bustle of New York. It is a large expanse of playground, parks, amusement rides & open spaces for many, many people. Food is available to purchase here & you can choose to wander, to... More

I had no idea the park was so big! Walked in it for five hours overall and did not see all of it. Felt safe and comfortable in all areas I was in although I don't think I'd want to go there late at night. Wear comfortable shoes and bring along a refillable water container and a camera. Musicians were... More

Central Park is large - but you can easily navigate the primary spots to visit with a little help. 1) enter through the south side center gate. If you are limited on time a ride through the park via one of the bicycle drivers will allow you to hit the highlights. Don't pay full price, posted is $120-$150 but you... More

It's a great park. Very huge and it has a small zoo here as well. We rode the horse carriage around the park. It's a huge crowd out there with the residents and tourist. This is where the nyc families go to play.

This is about my 4th time to central park in a few years. It is simply just beautiful. There is something surene about a park in the middle of a city. Wander around and find the boat house, sit here for some time and soak it all in, there are street entertainers and musicians all scattered about and it makes... More

It's a lovely, wonderful and vibrant place with lots going on if you want that. Or you can just chill and enjoy the open space. I just wish I had had longer in the park. I would suggest at least a couple of hours to experience everything that the park offers.

We did the park via a horse carriage. The driver was quiet, not like a tour, however, if you asked him questions he was very knowledgeable. The park is beautiful and worth seeing. It's amazing to be in a park surrounded by large buildings. You can actually forget you are in the heart of the city.

Must see, then have lunch at Tavern on The Green. Best hamburger I have ever had, bar none, and worth every cent!
