We really enjoyed getting away from the crowds and relaxing in Central Park. Awesome place to take pictures of the skyline along with the beauty of Central Park.

Was very busy, biking was a bust. It was so crowded it wasn't worth the hassle to bike around. Walking was best. Seems that the entire world was in the park.

biking around is the best way to explore CP - make sure you get a locker with your bike so you can chain at different spots and enjoy it better. It was a great experience for us and I definitely recomment spending a day there!

My husband and i go every summer like 10 times because it help us relax and the enviroment is really peacefull once you go in the middle. Obviously if you stay in the corners is noisy but if you go deep in the park they have waterfalls and green areas i love it 😍

Great park to relax and unwind after the mayhem of New York. Went for a walk and boat ride which were great plus just had to have a spin on the Carousel with the kids...

The sheer size of Central park and the activities there make one self feel dwarfed...you can use bicycles, horse carts etc ...but the best way is to walk around and explore.... watch the numerous statues, listen to the music by people looking for small gratias, youngsters and seniors playing baseball etc.. lot to see and lot to enjoy. lovely place...

We absolutely LOVED being able to walk through the park, away from all the horns, hustle and bustle! It's a BEAUTIFUL place with so many different little areas to explore! The Horse Drawn Carriage Ride was a REAL treat!

It's MASSIVE!! Walked from the Rockerfeller up 6th Avenue, dodging the sales people trying to sell us a "bike for rent" "carriage ride" "bus ride" Wanted to see the Dakota Building (John Lennon lived & died there). It's situated just across from the park on corner of W72nd Street. Just inside the park is Strawberry Fields where theres a mosaic... More

There is just so much to experience in central Park: you can run, walk or cycle through innumerable roadways or paths; take in a show, enjoy the artwork, stroll around lakes, have something to eat, or just spend a pleasant day, perhaps with a picnic. A truly great vibe in an amazing park.
