Central Park has its pretty parts and very ordinary parts. It houses a zoo, playgrounds, picnic areas etc. Horse and buggy rides are available if you don't want to walk, but expensive, of course. We visited Strawberry fields which is opposite the Dakota Building where John Lennon was shot. It's a HUGE park, and you could spend a day just... More

Right smack in the middle of one of the World's largest cities, Central Park offers a nice respite from the busyness of the rest of the city. Once you enter the park and the noises have dwindled to a murmur, you can almost forget the size of the city. You can either find a quiet spot for a rest, walk... More

Just a word of advice if you are thinking of cycling CP: except for the perimeter road and one other road you have to dismount and walk your bikes or lock them up. There are many many smaller paths that lead to all the cool stuff here that you really want to see. If you want the exercise, great, but... More

Having a beautiful park in the middle of a crazy-busy city was a flash of brilliance in the city's early developers. it makes you think that you'd seen it before, since it has been featured in so many movies and TV shows.

Beautiful place in the center of Manhatten. I went there on a sunny and warm august day. I must agree with other reviewers that you can easily use two days in Central Park. There are a lot of beautiful locations in Central Park and people everywhere.

My family and I spent the afternoon here during august. We enjoyed Central Park thoroughly because it gave us the opportunity to relax and come away from the business of new york whilst ticking a tourist sight off our list.

Central Park is car-free on weekends, so rent a bike (don't pay more than $10 per hour!), and enjoy the bike trails through the park. One full loop around the park is about 7 miles, so shouldn't take you more than an hour plus breaks for sightseeing. It is a bit hilly, so be prepared for some exercise. A great... More
