Central Park - full walk

Great area to enjoy another side of the busy NY. Take the time to check out the park on foot. Probably in summer time more time and spots to relax and enjoy the food.

Just walked up to a long line of horses and carriage drivers and got on one for an hour ride. It gave us a good look at the Park without having to walk in the cold. Was quite expensive though, over $100. Romantic enough

Had a great walk up to Central Park, and then a good old wander about. It is a beautiful public space - & nice to get away from all the straight lines!! The snow, & everyone oue on sleds etc made it even more fun

This is a magnificent park! Good for loitering and chilling. I went in the early summer which the weather was still warm. Many visitors came for sun-bathing and doing activities. In the lake near Bethesda fountain you can row a boat which is amazingly fun and easy.

So glad I got to see Central Park has always been on my bucket list. Wonderful feeling being in the middle but still seeing the outline of all the high rises. So many places to see and things to do in park, or just walk and relax.

If a sunset carriage ride through Central Park doesn't get you a goodnight kiss, nothing will. Beautiful, romantic informative.

Our family enjoyed a horse and carriage ride through Central Park. Cost for a family of 5 was $160.00 plus tip. Our driver was very funny and shared a lot of information with us about famous movie stars that live in certain high rises, skating rinks and certain areas were movies were filmed. Loved seeing the whole park this way.... More

Nice space in the centre of Manhattan it's large so a good distance from one end to the other no real signs so you have to guess which direction to go in. Asked for directions and I was offered a map to purchase a quick go left or right would have been great but unfortunately this help was not forthcoming.

Central Park is more of a warm weather spot than a winter wonder land. However, we did enjoy the snow for a hour or so. It's a beautiful park and a horse drawn carriage is a great way to see it all. But on a day where the temps are in the single digits, I wouldn't recommend it.
