For anyone visiting New York City, Central Park is must visit. It is such a centaury of calm in the busiest city. The park itself has so much to see and do, and is surrounded by so many nice places around. Doesn't matter where you enter from, every exit takes you to a new adventure.

It is a beautiful park a little overrated but definitely worth a visit if you have time. I wouldn't suggest going out of your way for it as it's not a must see (unless your a nature lover and then why would you be visiting New York). It has nice paths and benches to sit along shrubs and the lake... More

We went there during winter time, so it's quite freezing. It was still beautiful tho, with the leftover color pallettes of fall. It's certainly the oxygen source of NYC.

We see this in movies all the time and to actually take a stroll in such an iconic park is an amazing experience all in itself.

A bright sunny day after an day of snow showed this park off at its winter best. We spent several hours walking around the winding paths, past the ice rink and having a drink in The Boathouse before continuing through The Ramble. There is even an indoor carousel for the children.

Loved the John Lennon tribute it's so peaceful and respectful and has a few different tribute acts who sing his songs and are full of knowledge. We used both the horse and carriage at night which was great and the cycle carriage during the day. We only really saw about a third of the park and hope to see the... More

Came to Central Park for a friends wedding. Loved it! Even in the rain it was beautiful. Only downside was the huge number of homeless living there and the state of the toilets... the stall doors only come up to your neck/chest...
