Beautiful oasis! Worth plenty of visits or breaks during the day! Relaxing and great plant life! We ran across a man playing queen songs on a park piano! He was fantastic!

We spent a couple of hours wandering through the mid-section of the park. There are many nice spots to sit and enjoy the scenery - including a number of pagodas situated at the edge of the rather large lake in the middle of the park....More

There is so much to do in Central Park it is hard to know where to start. And it is SO big! But it is just wonderful to have this huge oasis of green right in the City! Visitors should not miss it!

We enjoyed many strolls through Central Park while staying at the Essex House Marriott property in June. There was a carnival going on one day and several food vendors were in the park. I was in need of an afternoon snack as we had arrived...More

It depends on what you want to do there. 4 hours is plenty for us.
Hi! My dad and I are planning to go to Central Park Saturday, July 1st, 2017 (spending the whole day and flying out of Laguardia Airport @ 6:45pm). 1. Should we rent a bike (or bikes)? 2. If we did rent a bike(s), should we rent a tandem or two singles (price not an issue)? 3. Any tips? Thank you! -Inge C.

Two single bikes over a tandem is the way to go. There are many smaller paths, turns, traffic, etc., that will be more easily navigated by single bikes. Whether or not you want to walk or bike is up to how much of the park... More
