Central Park is 341 hectares large (843 acres) and is located in the center of Manhattan. The park boasts of several lakes, theaters, ice rinks, fountains, tennis courts, baseball fields, many playgrounds and other facilities. The best part about this park definitely is the official tours you can take to explore the park completely. These are the Belvedere’s Kingdom tour, Marathon tour, Southern Welcome Tour, Conservatory Garden Tour, Memorial Walk Tour and a number of other tours for you.
During the weekends, cars are not allowed inside and that is the reason why you would completely experience a tranquil environment that the park has to offer to you. There are plenty of things to see here like dairy, Bethesda Terrace, Statues, strawberry fields, great lawn and Sheep meadows, Cleopatra’s needle, Bow bridge and ramble, Belvedere Castle, Shakespeare Garden, Conservatory garden and a discovery center. There are over 9,000 wooden benches in the park, which is the highest no of benches in any park in the world.
The park really sparkles during springtime. It is home to more than twenty varieties of purple, pink and white lilac blossoms from around the world and thus attracts visitors from around the world along with 275 species of birds, numerous bridges and arch and much more.

A must see. So many iconic film areas and it is beautiful. The park is too large to walk. You can have a rickshaw drive you on a tour to the iconic spots, but be careful not to be over charged. Lovely people! They can spot a tourist a mile off!
A beautiful place. I only got to spend a limited amount of time in the park as there are so many other attractions to explore in New York, however I would definitely recommend this even if you take a five minute stroll through the park. A peaceful and tranquil green area among the bustling city allows for a time for relaxation and refuge from the stresses of life.
One of my favorite parks of Manhattan. It's an adventure that seems to never end. Many places to stop and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Full of trees and grass lawn to laid or have a cute picnic. So fun during the summer. Art and old designs enhance the majestic park.
First of all. There is no way of coming to NYC and not walking at the Central Park. Visiting this place is critical to understand the city as almost all the city is close to it, from midtown to upper town. They have lots of places to walk and someone's be "lost" in it's center, but always a few minutes back to the city streets. Squirrels, sucks, birds, raccoons, and I don't know what, else makes this a vivid and exciting experience. For a tourist, a commuter or whoever is looking for some relaxing live. All of this in the hearth of the city. Simply amazing. In it's center you can quickly walk from the Met (it requires more than one day to see all of its Exhibitions). to the natural history museum. You can have a stagecoach ride or run on it's roads, during the winter you can ice-skate. You can have a picnic on its fields.... Gosh this is the best place in the city!
Does Central Park really require a review? It is a place that is equally adored both by locals and tourists. A boat ride, Lennon memorial, live music, ice skating, bike rides, benches that tell stories of times gone by, birds, fishes, a zoo, carousels, you name it and it has it. It is a town inside the big city. I love New York but I love New Yorkers more. Central Park is as diverse as the New York itself.
