“Lovely relaxing park”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We stayed very close to Central Park and walked and had coffee there most days. We were lucky to have sunny weather and could sit out in sheltered parts. The park has multiple pathways designed for walking running cycling cars and horse and carts. It is clean and well maintained, one of our favourite parts of the city

“Even better than expected”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

I loved it all. We only had one afternoon so I marked out all the spots I wanted to see the most. Hired a Ped cycle who drove us from spot to spot so we could fit it all in. It was a flying visit but I loved it and will definitely be going back someday. Looking back now I know I underestimated the size and the amount of points of interest. It would be good to have 2 days to see and enjoy all the highlights.

“An Oasis in the City”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

There is so much to do in and around Central Park. From horseback riding to rollerskating to a lazy day touring the beautiful gardens. Just be careful to get out of the Park before it gets dark. It is a big place and can be dangerous at night.
