Great place to visit, hired bikes and cycled round the park stopping at different locations en route, a fantastic experience.

Step our of the hustle and bustle of the city into nature. Walk, jog, listen to the performers and relax. Beautiful view from local hotels as well.

A place to relax and have some fresh air away from the crowd of the streets, a place for children to play and have some space.

Apart from the size of Central Park l found it rather boring and disappointing. They certainly could do with putting up a few sign posts. In my opinion London’s Royal parks are far superior and far more interesting.

I can’t recommend how good it is to cycle round here after walking so much was so nice. I used the official service which was pricey. I’d recommend arranging the citibikes.

Set in the heart of the city, take in the beauty of its scenery. Its lovely zoo is well worth a visit

This park is full of things to do and is so huge! Boating, ball games, cycling and running to say a few.

I live across the street from the Park and spend as much time there as I can. The good news is that from your perspective any amount of time in the Park makes sense. You can’t see the entire park and experience all that it... More
