Cycling around was a great way for us to see Central Park with our three kids. We stopped at the Belvedere Castle, which the kids recognised from the Smurfs! We also loved the squirrels and lakes.

Central Park is absolutely amazing. It's a lovely break from being in the busy city. It's crazy when you look at it from above and see all the towering buildings with a massive park in the middle. There's so much to do here, for example going on a rowing boat, horse and carriage rides, remote control boats.. there's even a zoo! It's really interesting too with lots of winding paths and 'secret' spots to find. A definite must see in new york! Even if it's just to people watch, there's always people practicing stunts on their rollerblades or painting etc.

To gin any idea of the size of this park so called one must go up to the top of the Rockerfeller Centre and then hey presto it is not a park but a vast green rectangle, housing a Museum, softball pitches, cafés cycle ways etc etch you have seen it in the movies now go visit.

We went to the park on a Saturday morning. It was very nice and clean and didn't seem exceptionally crowded (which really surprised me sine there is a large NY population). Lots of benches to sit on and a nice running trail.
