Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice little pond with plenty of seating around it and did not seem as crowded as other areas of the park.

One of the sites in Central Park, we gazed at it on our big walk around the major sites. The city is so lucky to have this great resource right in the middle of so much dense development.

The pond in Central Park is well worth a visit. The colours on the trees and the stillness of the water is amazing. Recommended.

Attractive pond (with features) at the southern end of Central Park. It’s a peaceful place to hang out and away from the madness or the city.

We were here on a rainy Friday and there were very few people about. A nice respite from the rest of the city.

This is a really nice and relaxing area within the park. We visited in winter so it was extremely cold. The park features lots of benches, so in the summer I imagine it’s even nicer to relax away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

This beautiful pond sits at the southeast corner of central park and can be seen from central park south. Situated in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the world, this urban pond has impressive skyline views, beautiful foliage during autumn and the Gapstow bridge seen in many movies. It's a great pond to sit at and feed the ducks and watch people. The area was already heavily trafficked with tourists, but it has become even more famous recently due to a brightly colored mandarin duck which has taken up residence there.

The tranquil water helps to make this area special. The sounds of the city die and you are left with peace except for a few thousand tourists. That said being in New York for a week it’s easy to understand how valuable the park is to residents.

This is in Central Park (southeast corner). It is picturesque with trees and bushes arranged nicely and of course the New York skyline in the background. Definitely a place for some pictures
