A perfect getaway from the busy and crowded city. Unbelievable to have such a wonderful park in the middle of New York City. A place to relax, stroll, enjoy the scenery, jog, walk, ice skate, etc. An amazing view of the city skyscrapers when inside the park. Reacheable via several metro stops and within walking distance of Rockafella center. Definitely... More

Growing up in NYC Central Park always seemed a place to escape to during the summer, just to chill and enjoy nature. It is quite peaceful, yet just a stone throw away from the hustle and bustle of the city noise. Love it!

We took a Rickshaw ride through the park and it was awesome. Stopped at all the sights! Was so worth it. The guy was great with explaining everything and taking pictures of us and really taking his time. We will do this again for sure because it was so much fun. Everyplace we saw that might have had a song... More

If you come to NYC, you must come to Central Park to watch the people, have a breath of fresh air, see some wonderful birds and waterfowl. Central Park is the lungs of Manhattan (along with Inwood Park and Fort Tryon in Northern Manhattan). Enjoy the respite from the rushing around and relax.

After visiting the Natural History Museum, it was an easy transition into the park. This is a very large park. Its pretty easy to get yourself turned around, but is also very quick to regain bearings! I've been through the park a few times and have yet to see it all. Very well maintained.

One of NYC's many wonders. Beautiful any time of the year but magnificent in Spring. I live in suburban NY and come to the park any opportunity I get. My children and I bring our bikes and make a day of it.

Great for walks, zoo (including children's zoo) around East 64th Street. Look up at the Delacorte Music Clock at the entrance to the Children's Zoo. Statues of Balto and Hans Christian Anderson. Bethesda Fountain. Row boats and restaurant on the lake. Bicycling (no cars) on Sunday, including rollerblading. Check schedules for summer concerts, events, and Shakespeare in the Park.

An escape of the busy city! Birds, flowers and sun, perfect for a lazy day. The belvedere castle, the carousel, the Alice in wonderland statue are just some of the thing you can see in central park!

Central park is a relaxing haven with plenty to do for the kids. Central parks comes alive at the weekend with new yorkers, which is an experience in itself. Take a boat out on the lake for $15 (cheaper than Dedham local to me), carriage ride is a bit pricey but good to do if cold, the zoo is great... More
