“A must see place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

We were in NYC 8 days over Xmas and new year and we just kept getting pulled back to Central Park

We must have been through it almost every day we were there. Our 2 sons aged 9 and 6 loved it - especially when they saw the zoo from Madagascar

I think it is at its best in winter but would love to see it during the other seasons and see how different it can be

A truly great place - make sure you go!!

“It is like your not in the city anymore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I love parks and wanted go to see it. We unfortunately did not get to see a whole lot because some people in our group where cold. But if you go in the warmer months I would recommend renting a bicycle to see more of the park. It is as if the city disappears. All the noise and hustle and bustle are gone. It really is something. We did not do a carriage ride because of my personal animal rights feelings.

The Park is a must if your visiting New York. Its so pretty and so much to do there more than people think. It like a different world to what surrounds it and seeing is believing. A definite must.

“Central Park is beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The best way to see Central Park on a cold winter's day is snuggled under a blanket in a horse and carriage with your new husband x
