Walking around Central Park is always a treat but it's even better when there are activities taking place or you stop in and have lunch at The Boathouse. Fantastic.

For relaxation, people watching, music, theatre, animals, lakes and quiet places, Central Park has it all. And, it's free.

We spent a couple of hours wandering the trails, taking photos, and people-watching. The park is well-used and well-maintained. Afterward we had a very fancy lunch at Jean-Georges, and we were glad that we had worked up an appetite!

My husband and I had a nice time walking around Central Park. The scenery in January is so pretty. We were going to take a carriage ride around the park, but ran out of time. We plan to visit and stay longer next year.

This park is always inviting and you can meander for miles if you wish on the trails and walks. Rent a bike, see the zoo, take a carriage ride. Something for everyone, all ages.

Great place for kids to run around! Lots of benches and quiet spots for reading or just people watching! Carriage rides and amusement park too. Bring cash as the restaurants are cash only and no ATMs

Had a lovely walk around with family, try to print off a map or use the Central Park app as it is easy to get with so many pathways. The boathouse is a must!

I've flown over it, so knew wasn't small. But had no idea how large the park was. Took an enjoyable half day wandering around, and that was only the bottom (south) half. Never realised it was quite so hilly in parts, rocky and had such different surfaces and different types of areas to discover. Being English found the 'Imagine' section... More
