The flowers were beautiful. You could easily get lost in the park it is so big. I could have walked for hours.

You just cant help loving Central Park. Having heard great stories for years i was still totally unprepared. Some folks mentioned that its just a park, but that's such a limited perspective. Considering its size, its location in the middle of the country's most populous city and the fact that its 100% man-made and you cant help but wonder at its magnificence. looking up at the NYC skyline from the Sheep's Meadow is simply surreal. Loved it.

Nothing much to see except a park or greenery in concrete jungle of Manhattan. It may be good for New Yorkers but if you are tourist than don't waste much of time except passing through park to have a feel or short break to get freshen up from manhattans tiring stay.

I visited once in my life,New York City and i feel lucky that i spent half day in Central Park.It's amazing how the people of this town need this park to relax. It was Sunday morning and i was impressed watching hundrets of people running. We preffered to walk, but you can go around with a bicycle or by a hourse carriage if you like.The park is very big, clean and beautiful and the lake is wonderful.Don't miss it, if you ever visit New York.
