Enjoy seeing New Yorkers run, bike and enjoy leisure. Olmstead's treasure is not to be missed. You must go to the castle and Turtle Pond. Enjoy the Central Park Boathouse and the sailboats that children launch!

Depends on what you want to see and how you get around. This time we walked but stayed at the top end and spent about 2 hrs at that end. I have hired a bike and ridden round. This I the quickest way and you see a lot more... More
Hi! My dad and I are planning to go to Central Park Saturday, July 1st, 2017 (spending the whole day and flying out of Laguardia Airport @ 6:45pm). 1. Should we rent a bike (or bikes)? 2. If we did rent a bike(s), should we rent a tandem or two singles (price not an issue)? 3. Any tips? Thank you! -Inge C.
