Super way to see the park with a very knowledgable Turkish young man who was studying a masters' degree in NYC. He had taught himself all the information he gave us about Central Park, the surrounding buildings, who lived there and facts about John Lennons' memorial and the Dakota building where he was shot. The ride was on a very crisp cold day, but he gave us a blanket to cover our legs. He gave a running commentary as he cycled and stopped in a couple of places for us to take photos etc and also watch some street performers. This you don't get if you pay more to go in a horse and carriage, so it's very enjoyable and I learnt a lot in the space of 30 mins. $75 and worth it for two of us!

A lovely place to walk around, very pretty. Great shots to be had around here. Takes a good 2-3 hours to walk around the whole place.

Walk or jog around the beautiful 1.5 mile reservoir, play tennis on the 24 courts, visit the adorable zoo with penguins, polar bears, sea lions, monkeys, etc,. Visit the interesting grottos and waterfalls in the upper northwest corner, and the Belvedere Castle which houses both a National Weather Station location and The Henry Luce Nature Observatory. Enjoy an outdoor concert. View the many large sculptures. Walk around the Conservatory Garden.
There are more than enough things to see that can easily take up a whole day.
