Me and my two sons walk through park central to the Natural history museum which was a lovely thing to do as there was lots to see along the way

As beautiful as you see in the movies. Safe and tranquil in the middle of NYC. Motor a leisurely walk from the Met to the boating lake, a great de-stress

For Manhattanites, it's a chance to see trees. Even when you've seen trees before, Central Park offers some great things to do. Try these: A) Central Park zoo B) model sailboat sailing C) Tavern on the Green

Amazing park which brought back so many memories from old movies, kids films and TV shows! So much to recognise and definitely needs more than the one visit or brief stroll!!

Great refuge in the middle of the city. It's amazing how in certain parts of it you can totally forget where you are. Well worth a visit if only to see how many film locations you can spot.

I have walked, run and biked through this park. At all times felt super safe, great oasis in the summer.

One of the most amazing, gorgeous and thought through man-made establishments I've ever been to. They have kept the rocks but built around them to create an oasis of sorts in the middle of a crazy and loud city. Everything about this place seemed magical, once you entered it you never heard the screeches and honks of the city, but... More

In the middle of Manhattan, in Central Park, a great zoo, how unexpected. Near to so many iconic tourist attractions, entrance on 5th Avenue, another notable tourist attraction with its great upscale shops, Tiffany's, among many fashionable upscale jewelry and apparel shops. The Central Park Zoo is enjoyed by children from 1 - 100.

We had a great morning riding bikes around the park. We looped the whole outer road and enjoyed watching all the runners and spotting landmarks along the way. It was a hot day so particularly enjoyed the playgrounds with water that our son colud splash in. Next time we'll allocate a full day and take a picnic. We didn't come... More
