Safe, clean and beautiful. Great for running, walking, exercising. Lots of snow and Ice Skating rinks were open while I was there in early March.

The park is huge and can be overwhelming to see it all. Take a carriage ride for sure. You learn more and will not be exhausted. So much history and great movie location sights.

Never been to Central Park. Went through from one end to the other. Backtracked to Strawberry Fields to contemplate my love for John Lennon whom I’ve loved for over 50 years. It was a peaceful experience!!!

I probably would have given a higher rating if I was able to see the Park in the summer when everything is green and in full bloom. Otherwise it was still nice to experience - very overcrowded though. We had pre booked a carriage ride...More

It will be cold. Also make sure that you and your guests have excellent directions to the Cove and that they will need to walk there, probably from the West 72d Street entrance.
