“No better to spend an afternoon than Central Park”

What more needs be said. We walked and walked and enjoyed every minute. Didn't meet any rude or obnoxious people, everyone was rather polite and courteous.

“Oasis in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

I went through the park a little quicker than I would have liked on a tour with middle school kids. If you take kids, you MUST see Strawberry Fields, Poets Row and Bethesda Fountain if nothing else

“Needed more time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We took a short stroll after we went to The Met. Was tired and it was hot out, so didn't stay to long. Maybe on my next visit we can spend more time. There were kids playing and walking dogs etc.....

“A welcome escape from the heat and sound of NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Central park is a must see for our family every visit to NYC. After the frenetic pace of the city it is enjoyable to see flowering trees that smell so lovely and seeing tourists as well as new Yorkers enjoying this beautiful open space in the heart of Manhattan.
