A good idea between the wars to create and preserve a large green lung in the middle of the dull sprawling suburbs. Some money spent as part of job creation during the Depression but most of the boating pools and promenading areas have long since gone. Now the park is being encroached and built upon. It is shrinking fast and the green areas are not tended or protected. Why does an enclosed swimming and leisure complex have to be built on green fields? Why cannot it be built on one of the city's numerous derelict redundant industrial sites. This park need careful and imaginative planning. It need not be expensive but would make a huge difference.
As for travellers there is little or nothing of use in Central Park unless you have sunk to pitch and putt light hearted golf. The previous contributor is right to highlight the potential dangers for lone women and children. There are frequent press reports of unsavoury incidents.
