Should we or shoudnt we was what me and my daughter said the first couple of days in New York. By day 3 we went and even though we didnt see a lot due to me having a knee replacement later this month, we are so glad we did It is stunning, magical, just beautiful. We looked round the far end of it with the ice skating rink and the small lake. We were there an hour and I will come back to New York just to go and see all this park. There are ducks, geese, squirrells birds all over the place, I cant even imagine how beautiful this place is in the summer as when we were there this week in Winter it was still stunning.and I knoiw there is soi much more to see Highly recommended

Beautiful and peaceful setting. Tommy Pettiti, Esq was able to play his harmonica and sing with a local NYC Guitar player to give NYC a taste of Florida Soul! 🎶 Beautiful pathways and highly recommend.

My favorite place in world and NYC. To stroll through the forrests and along the paths, watching the many diverse and beautiful people in NYC. To get a coffee at one of the stands and enjoy the nature in such a magnificent city.

Always fun to walk through central park. there isn't much greenery in New york so to walk through central park always offers some escape from the buildings

Had to visit Central Park since it is what everyone tells us about! BUT not impressed. It was a BIG GREEN SPACE, don't get me wrong, but really nothing special... Maybe because I have a lot of green space at home and don't live in the city perhaps?

Either way, it was big and green and beautiful. A breath of fresh air in the big city. We were able to work from one end of the park to the other. It is a LONG walk though.

We visited Central Park on 25th December.

We saw this area both in the day and the night, and would definitely recommend the day instead. It is beautiful in the daytime and due to its size, there is lots to see, but at night it becomes a bit shadier and/or dangerous, as it isn't well signposted.

There are several very scenic lakes and paths, and you can also pay for a horse ride. There was also ice skating at Christmas, though the line was impossibly long. It is a great place to be able to see all of the city. It is a must-see for any visitors to NYC.

Will definitely be coming back if I'm ever in the area.
