We visited the park on our last day of our holiday last week but it was so hot we couldn't take full advantage of it. We walked a bit but mainly sat on benches in the shade soaking up the atmosphere. We did have to move at one point as the empty bench we chose was empty for a reason... More

Our ride aorund the perimeter of the park was a highlight of our trip. We stopped many times along the way to take in the Bethesda Fountain and some of the musicians. Lots of snacks for us too but beware the pretzels from the vendors. They were underbaked and gross and the guy did not want to give me my... More

I go there every week! It is a peaceful and beautiful place! Perfect to go alone, with your family or with your love. You can not forget to go while you are in NYC.

I love this place! It's great for spending time with the family or just solo. It's great to be able to breathe fresh air in the middle of such a hectic city. There're baseball fields, bike rentals, areas to walk the dogs, playgrounds for the kids, a small carnival with games for the kids...there's just so much to do. Every... More

How many things to do in central Park! Air is quite more fresh than the rest of the city, grass is perfect, this is an ideal place to have a nap or sport.

What else can I say? It's Central Park! Picturesque views, the zoo, tavern on the green, the playground surrounded by giant rocks, you can go on and on. If you don't love a yuge park in the middle of the city don't go to the city.

I explored Central Park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in July and found something beautiful or interesting at every turn. The spots I wanted to visit included Loeb Boathouse, Bow Bridge and Strawberry Fields but I found the entire Park peaceful, relaxed and a definite must while in New York.

Central Park is s gem. Imagine, all that green space with Nike snd running paths, space for art displays, and the best --a tribute to John Lennon. My children and I were thrilled to see this tribute to Lennon in the park across from The Dakota. Young and old you will love The Park
