My wife and I love to walk and today we walked from one end of Central Park to the other.....walked by The Pond, The Checker House, The Sheep, The Lake, Strawberry Fields, The Obelisk, The Reservoir, The North Meadow and the North Woods. Took us a few hours but oh so much fun. This park is a real "people" park...something for everyone...whether it be running, walking, boating, softball, soccer, Easter Egg hunts, biking, horse and buggy rides, or just lounging on the rocks....a true Great Urban Park. We came in April and many of the fields are still off limits to protect them during the wintery months. Soon the flowers and flowery trees will all be a-bloom and will be so beautiful. Love the fact there are no cars in this park....just people powered and horse powered vehicles. Love this park!!!! A must see while in NYC.

We took a stroll in Central Park during our visit to NYC.

Even though the trees were still not quite turning green, the park was quite nice. My son had so much fun climbing up and down the big rocks in the Lake area.

It's also a great place for runners.

Get a map of the park before you go. This way you know what surrounds it and that may help guide you in the direction of things you may want to see or do. We didn't do that, but wish we thought of it at the time. Our Trip was in Dec 2016

I loved the mix of nature with the city in the background. We tried our best to get a sense of every atmosphere of the park but I am sure a return trip is necessary to accomplish that.
