“Relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

Went for a stroll and took a horse and carriage ride around the park! You cannot miss out on central park when you visit new york! Do plan in advance otherwise you will find yourself getting lost and walking further than you had hoped, so plan a route and take a map!

“Central Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

The park is a good open space in a very busy spaceless city. Do not expect beautiful gardens.

“Visit the Less-Used North End of the Park for a Different Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

We spent a day in New York at the beginning of May, and took the opportunity to explore the north end of the park---between 96th and 110th streets. There are far fewer people at this end of the park, although one could hardly say we were alone---but this is New York City, after all. There are lots of woodland paths, plenty of paved paths for runners and bikers, and a heavily ravine with waterfalls and many birds. The Conservatory Garden area between 102 and 106th streets on the east side of the park (just west of Fifth avenue) is delightful---we'll be back!

“Spend time and watch people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

It's that simply. Buy some food and refreshments, take a spot in the Central Park and just watch people. This huge green square in the map is certainly worth seeing.
