We chose to do a Horse and Carriage tour of the Park and we loved it! This was part of my Parents 65th Wedding Anniversary tour. Both of them are in their 80's and we wanted to see as much of the park as possible without tiring them out for the day with that much walking. We were amazed by the size and beauty of Central Park. There are smaller attractions within the Park we only grazed by, but rest assured one day We'll tour the Park again by foot. If you get the chance to tour Central Park, be it by foot or bike, Do It, you won't be disappointed! The Park is bustling with a variety sightseers and locals. We found the Park to be clean and well cared for. Always a busy place.

It’s beautiful. Was hoping the leaves had started to change by time we visited but they weren’t, can’t fault the park for that still a beautiful place! It makes me happy! Just wish the zoo wasn’t so expensive.

First visit today and did not disappoint. Loads of great areas and asides some of restrooms being bit short on cleanliness, park itself stunning. A must see!

We got the cab to let us out near 74th Street and the Dakota building so we could visit the Strawberry Fields and Imagine sign in memory of John Lennon. We only had a few hours so we picked the area with the fountains and the boathouse. Great pictures everywhere, especially the bridge and near the water and fountains. Keep your phone charged if you wander off the wider trails because I had to use Google Maps and GPS to find my way back to my friends. Consider renting a pedicab or horse and carriage to get a good overview. Pedicab may let your out for more pictures though and have a better price. Have a great time!

New Yorkers love this beautiful expanse of fresh air and open space, it is not hard to see why.
Beautiful landscapes, paddle boats for hire, extremely good availability of ice cream!
Handy to lots of running tracks!
