  • My first time in New York City and we had some time to spare before our train departed, so we went to Central Park to experience an iconic landmark... It was great! I was surprised by how large the park is, in spite of being surrounded by one of the largest, busiest cities in the country. The fountains were gorgeous and the walkways were great for a leisurely stroll and just moving around some before the long ride home. Lots of opportunities for interesting photos and plenty of potential to make some interesting memories. 10/10, will visit again when I'm in town.

  • Always love walking around central park. Each section has something unique to see. I like the Charles Dickens sculpture area, renting the roe boats from the boat house and rowing them around the lake. The castle is beautiful to see...even by the light of the moon. There's Shakespeare in the Park, Music concerts, and watching skaters and street performers are always fun. And the Central Park Zoo is great for the kids. (And...if you just want to sit around...Saturdays are always the best for people watching!) Too many things to list here. I've been there dozens of times and never grow tired of it.

  • There's something about walking Central Park in the fall, breathing in that crisp New York autumn air, people watching while sitting on the benches and admiring the beautiful leaves in mid color change as they descend to the ground.  All of this has been a dream of mine since forever and to actually cross it off my bucket list, puts me in complete euphoria. I could literally spend a whole day at Central Park.  It's miles and miles of pure bliss.  There are playgrounds for children, lovely statues to stop and look at while out on a stroll, areas for bikers and joggers, lakes and structures to admire and if you feel like doing absolutely nothing but just take everything in, by golly do so!  It's Central Park, why not?!  Just make sure to bring comfortable shoes!

  • Lots interesting places in Central Park. Be prepared to spend hours here if you want to know and enjoy Central Park. You can hire a horse carriage to cover more grounds, or you can rent a row boat to enjoy the lake. Then there's a huge reservoir where you can take scenic photos. No need to venture out for a meal, there's a restaurant inside the park. I came here during springtime to photograph the cherry blossoms on the eastern side of the reservoir. Explore around, it will never a dull moment even during wintertime. By the way, someone had asked if it's allowed inside the pond. That's a no no anytime.

  • One of my favorite places in the whole world. That's been my best outdoors kind of place since I was a kid. When people talk about being in nature where they're from, I always say how Central Park is NYC back to nature place. I love it and all its good treasures.
