One of the great things about New York is the hustle and bustle, the constant activity, and it really is the city that never sleeps, however we do need to sleep. A break from the madness is needed every now and again. Central Park is the perfect place for such a rest. There is something for everyone, lovely peaceful walks, play grounds, a zoo, a skating rink, horse and carriage rides and lots of becnhes to just sit and watch the world usually run or cycle by.
It is massive but good to break up so you can make several visists and see/ do something new each time.

The horses of Central Park may not be around much longer if the mayor of NYC has his way, so grab a fun ride while you can. We had Martin from Ireland as our informative tour guide to the park's history and current happenings, and Luke his horse took us around the park. All the spring blooms on trees and flowers were out in all their glory. This was a wonderful way to spend an hour in the city.

Never realized how enormous it actually is. Great for pictures, biking and letting kids run with Frisbee or kite.

Spent a wonderful 4 hours walking through Central Park. There was plenty to see and do. Nothing really to dislike.
