stunning park. hard to believe its TOTALLY man made. I grew up visiting there regularly and the city has done a great job making it a clean safe place (stay below 86th street especially in the PM) lots to see and do in and around the park.

Central Park is an amazing park in the heart of a huge city. This is a good place to go for some greenery and exercise. Very safe and well maintained. A good place for a walk or jog.

It's worth a visit! We walked front he east side through great part of the park, visited John Lennon's site, ice skating rink and the bridges and gardens all around. Despite the cold weather we faced, clear skies and good photo spots were the apex oft he visit.
