Reviewed 9 December 2012

Visited in December 2012 its a great place to 'people watch' and view the skaters enjoying themselves. did not bother with the 'carriage ride' it looke to have 'rip off' written all over it ! enter further up the park its less crowded. dident see any of the film stars and singers who live in apartments overlooking the park

“Great people watching and exploring.”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

Walking around with a tasty beverage is a great way to spend a few hours. There are so many times of people, though plenty of tourists, but its all good. There will often be random street performances going on including musical things and acrobatic stunts which are fun to see. I like the honey roasted cashews/almonds that the guys at carts sell. They are located at all the hot spots in the park. There are many nice surprises located thoughout the park like various statues, fountains and cool buildings. It's a really big park! I have yet to see it all and I've been there many times.

“Central Park”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

A wonderful green space in a city that is so full of people. With so much land devoted to parkland when real estate is so costly it shows great planning and the emphasis is on the quality of life for the people.
