“Take the Horse & Buggy ride”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

$50 for 2 people for 20 minutes. We loved it, quick way to see the park & warm up. Drivers are quite comical.

“A Great Way to Enjoy Nature and People Watch”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

This iconic park has a plethora of things to see and do. But if you are simply looking to have a seat and take a break while taking in a glimpse at some real New Yorkers, it'll be great for that as well.

“Bigger than you think”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

It was huge, it was beautiful and i want to go back just to see it in all its glory in summer. Seeing all the movies sites was good, especially for a movie buff like myself. We cycled it, walked it and went round in a pedicab. Snow had fallen and it was picturesque to say the list. The only down side; you can't cycle on the paths even though it seems a bit pointless to only get to cycle on the road, we did anyway and the newyorkers were not happy about this, but so were other tourists but it was march and its wasn't very busy. You can get a fine for doing this but i think we got lucky. and the other thing was not seeing any leaves! A must do in new york but not on a bike ;)

“Fun for small kids”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

It was really nice and plenty to do (sports activities). But during winter, it is super cold so dress in layers.

“Everyone's favorite!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Everyone of the six members of my family agree that our walk of the park was our favorite afternoon. After days of bucking the crowds in the streets and the traffic and the mobs in the larger museums, it truly lived up to its reputation as a breath of fresh air. Strolling through the lovely winding paths, admiring the views of the city skyline as seen from the park, and just sitting on a bench people watching was so relaxing after almost a week of intense sightseeing.. I particularly enjoyed admiring the variety of adorable,well cared for, and well behaved dogs being walked through the park.
