Its a beautiful park and too big to be explored on foot with little kids. There are so many places to visit inside the park like Zoo, Castle, Pond etc. Its a nice park to even take a stroll.

I make it a point to get out to the Park every time I come to the City. It's so peaceful and beautiful. If you're a runner, there's a 10K loop and then loops that are shorter, or you can make it longer. It's perfectly...More

This is very large and beautiful park in the middle of the city. We had a very enjoyable walk and saw many different things visitors can do, there is something to do for everyone. It is also very well maintained and kept very clean

We strolled through Central Park a couple of times during our visit to NYC. It's a great place to people-watch, have a snack, buy kitschy souvenir, or just relax.

My son and I visited New York in December to experience it during the holidays. Central Park looks so beautiful full of snow! Worth it to hire a tour guide at Central Park if you want the full experience.

We walked it in the cold! It is a beautiful walk though I would think biking would be as fun in the warmer weather too. You could cover more area in a shorter period of time.
