  • It's Central Park, just amazing, what more can you say! Great for a nice long scenic bike ride, the lawns are perfect for laying out or playing games, the summer concerts and movies are awesome! So many things to enjoy and see here. I've been hundreds of times and it never gets boring.

  • Central Park is one of the most overlooked destinations in the city. Sure, everyone loves to stop by for a few minutes and get a couple of pictures; but, you could really spend an entire day in the park with different things to do, especially in the late spring/summer/early fall. There's usually a great, free concert of some sort every week, there's the 10k running and biking loop around the park that is without a doubt my favorite 10 kilometers to run, there's the castle, the reservoir, etc. etc. Just check it out and make sure you really soak it all in!

  • Central Park is AMAZING! In a city like NYC it is incredible that they have this tremendous space. There is lots to see and do in central park and yet you can still find peace and quiet. It is massive, you could spend days there and still not see it all. A walk around though and you'll surely see dancers, musicians, weddings, photo shoots, artists and so much more.

  • Self-explanatory. Central Park is the most incredible park in NYC, and certainly one of the best in the world. When you need to get away from the city and have some nature in your life, this is the best place to go. You can usually find an area with little to no people, and there are natural water features! Get some fresh(er) air in your life, look at a tree, visit Central Park!

  • Nice, quiet (in some areas), historic, very green and beautiful. Plenty for kids to do. Family friendly (just go before it's dark). Not as terrible as the movies make it out to be. Plenty of romantic moments (carriage, bicycle rides, boat rental booths). VERY VERY VERY big park. Reserve a full day to check it all out.
