We visited the park the day after a big snow storm. Was beautiful to walk around and managed a couple of the sites. Need a lot more time than a half a day.

Such an iconic park to visit, so much to see and do. I went boating on the lake which was fun and also headed to the Met which is on the park.

Few steps inside, and you are in a whole new world where you can relax and breathe in. A must if you are in the city.
