Walking through the park on a sunny cold day with snow on the ground and a frozen lake was just how I imagined it. I wasn't wrong!

Perfect location and setting for taking a break from the fast pace of New York. In the center of everything, there are many attractions for a quick break or a long walk.

Have been to Central Park multiple times but this was the first time I hired a bike - used my city explorer pass to hire a bike for the day from a shop on 56th St - only needed for a couple of hours, but well worth it. Otherwise there are city bikes for hire at the entrance of the... More

A vast park that is always there in some series or a movie. Its good to be just there physically and feel the air. Might not be upto the expectations are it seems a lot bigger on tv than it is in reality but there is no way you should skip it

Firstly, it's a BIG park, so be prepared to walk a few miles, or you can buy a €60 horse-drawn carriage ride. Beware of the pedi-cabs, they charge $4 to $5 per MINUTE per PERSON! There is plenty to see and do in the park, nut due to it's size do consider using a map of what's there. The John... More

If I could sum Central Park up with 1 word then it'd be stunning!! I absolutely love the place it's so peaceful I've walked through it and also had the pleasure of taking a pedlow taxi around it with a tour guide pointing out things I may of missed!!

You can't go to manhattan without a stroll through Central Park. Whether you're ice-skating or just wandering for a bit of serenity in one of the busiest cities in the world it doesn't disappoint. Do yourself a favour and get some Nuts4Nuts while you're at it - best food in New York 😜

Great place to visit especially on the bike tuk tuks which are better value than the horse drawn carriage and you get a personalised tour.
