A different world inside New York with amaizing nature views. Great for jogging or just take a picnic in the middle of this natural paradise.

We had a wonderful time in Central park, my teenage grandkids loved it also. We felt very safe and secure walking around the park even in the evening

I haven't been to CP since 2000 and wow what a difference. Lovely, clean and a nice break from the mania of the city. It's huge but worth even 1/2 hour after a museum visit - if nothing else get to the Belvedere Castle.

Hi! My dad and I are planning to go to Central Park Saturday, July 1st, 2017 (spending the whole day and flying out of Laguardia Airport @ 6:45pm). 1. Should we rent a bike (or bikes)? 2. If we did rent a bike(s), should we rent a tandem or two singles (price not an issue)? 3. Any tips? Thank you! -Inge C.
