A great place to do just about any outdoor activity. Very beautiful scenery and kept quite clean. Horse carriages and bikes are available to rent. Lot's of joggers and people walking. This is a must see place if you are coming to Manhattan!

We didn't go through the entire park, but what we did see was very nice and quaint! It is a huge park and we were on a limited time frame so didn't have the time to walk around the whole thing. We went near the zoo entrance. A lot of vendors hanging around trying to get you to buy and... More

Did not like the so called kids zoo - cow, goats and pigs kept in a very small unnatural environment

Our hotel was only 1.5 blocks away from this Central Park up near East 76th Street. We went into the park several times and it was lovely just wandering around. Loads of different things to do in there for everyone. Particularly enjoyed boating on the lake. Never felt over-crowded despite there being loads of people.

If you want to watch New Yorkers in action then a visit to Central Park is a must. It has something to offer for everyone and provides a stillness from the hustle bustle of the city.

Loved Central Park, was so peaceful and green amongst the madness of New York. Veru surreal experience being amongst all the green of the park and then looking up and seeing all the skyscrapers. Loved the large rocks that you could sit on, the unexpected ponds, the buskers who give you impromptu entertainment, the bikes and the whole atmosphere.

We enjoyed a nice afternoon walking around central park ... enjoyed watching the baseball, lovely band playing in the bandstand, there was a live concert in a separate area of the park. Lovely peaceful boating lake. Felt very safe. Food outlets were very busy and took a long time to get served. However, the toilets near the bandstand were the... More

I love the street performers in central park, it adds to the magic of the whole place. there are plenty of tourists here, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, you might want to skip central park.
