Well worth the time just to appreciate it
Aug 2021
We walked in it. My granddaughter climbed the rocks. We saw the skating area & probably should have taken the bike drive of an individual to teach us more. But we were satisfied we saw enough greenery.

We spent a morning in the park and had to return in the evening for more! So much to do - you'll need the whole day to see it all!

Who doesn't love Central Park?

If you really want to experience New York, this is the place to be. From street performers to food to random encounters with interesting people, you can't go wrong with Central Park. Be sure to bring a little cash to tip the street performers and plenty of water.

Great place to walk around. So much to see. Great place to people watch. There are so many different sections and each one is different. No place like NYC,

Beautiful location

Love this place. Come here at every opportunity I have.
Sadly too much people here smoke the plant all over the park. Disgusting inconsiderate people. I hope they get what they deserve. A huge ticket.

Just wonderful, as always

I’ve been to the Park before but it’s always new and different. I feel like every time I go I see something new. A good break from the busyness of the city.

Nice, Walkable
Jul 2021
We felt quite safe with many people enjoying a hot Sunday afternoon walking throughout the park. There are carriages and rowboats, as well as a small zoo. We only choose to walk though.

Like in a movie
Jul 2021
Who doesn’t know about Central Park? While you stroll among its nature, lurking at the New York skyscrapers, you will feel like in one of the movies set in this amazing city. I recommend you the lake, in which you can feed the ducks!
