Take the day to enjoy this place
Jun 2021
I had the pleasure of having a full day to explore Central Park. I recommend taking a picnic if possible and just walk around until you find a nice spot, there are so many. We walked the whole north to south and zig-zagged across to find the Resevoir, Strawberry Fields and the Alice and Wonderland Statue. As a visitor, it is easy to understand why there are so many people taking in the day at this fabulous park. We saw runners, cyclist, families and kids playing games, photographers, musicians, artisits, and a few birthday parties. I think next time I'll rent a bike and tour the park that way. My visit made a great Sunday in Central Park a reality.

I feel like each visit to Central Park is a whole different experience. We had some planned things to see but also spent time just wandering around Central Park is always my kids' favorite thing about a visit to the city. Skip the rowboats. So many people doing it, looked more like bumper boats.

Nice to stroll around and escape into nature in the bustling city
Apr 2021
Central Park is a classic. It's a lovely, scenic place to take a walk around the park, and if you go early in the mornings you can avoid people. I like being able to see the ducks swim in the pond, and to stroll through the paths. Classic NYC visit for tourists, and understandably so being it's so well maintained even in this pandemic.

An amazing place - full of variety and interest. It is far bigger than any of us had imagined. A wonderful space in the middle of the city

Welcome respite from the city - even on a HOT day.

Went with a small family group to Big Hill, part of the North woods and the Pond. Beautiful green area! Had to learn to watch out for the bicyclists but loved traversing the Park.

Walked and read at one of the many benches.

Strange, but true....We enjoyed having a place to take the dog, who didn't understand why she was being asked to "do her business" on the city streets.

Every corner is a new surprise. It was beautiful on a rainy day, and spectacular on a beautiful June afternoon.
