Great park that has a swimming center, library and community center right next to it. Additionally there are baseball fields, tennis courts, two playgrounds and plenty of area to run around. In the winter they host ice skating and on july 4th there is sometimes a fireworks show here. Great for the community!
CP is super relaxing spot to sit around & chill. It’s mellow just watching all of the dogs walking by & taking in the feel of the city a little bit differently. One of the very many relaxing spots in NY
Iconic New York experience and American culture touchstone. Even before you go, you must already formed a vivid picture of what its like from books and movies (Stuart Little? Catcher in the Rye? When Harry Met Sally?)
Central Park is a must-see if you’re in New York. Such a beautiful park to walk around. The green space is truly remarkable.
It take more than one day to see the whole park. But it definitely a place to chill out and enjoy the city
Great place to relax, explore, or meet people (weather permitting). You can spend a whole day here and still not see the whole thing.
Such an NYC staple. If you get the chance to walk through it you definitely should. The Central Park Zoo is also a great stop. As a local, I say avoid the carriages since the horses don't get the best treatment from their owners. Get some bikes and bike through or take a nice stroll and enjoy the nature around
Central Park is so fun to stroll around. We were there during the first snowfall of the year this past year and it was so pretty! We were pretty much the only people wandering around in the snow at night lol. It’s a beautiful park with tons to do. The people standing at the front of the park trying to get you to do their tours is quite annoying but I’ve gotten really good at saying no with all of my travel experience!
a very nice walk in the park. i recommend spending the afternoon here, maybe a picnic or just simply relaxing. i remember one man who told me that central park is the only place in new york where you'll see trees. i laughed. it was true.
Who doesn't love Central Park!? Skip the bike hire as you can't cycle around most of the park so you will either end up missing most of it or having to push your bike around. I always enter from 5th Ave and then walk up the East side so I can visit Alice in Wonderland and finish my walk at the met. If you like rooftop bars head into the Met and go up to their bar for a great view over the park. If you still have energy left then keep walking up to the Reservoir for one of my favorite sunset views.
You must visit this place if you're in NY. I can't get enough of it! Beautiful and calm.
