Had a great early morning walk, would love to see this place in the summer. People were very friendly and dogs roamed freely. As a person who loves to go on walks, this is what I needed.

Plenty to see and experience in this vast park. A zoo, art museum, armory and restaurant are just a few items to experience. Provides a good glimpse of luxury living and foreign consulate buildings if you admire architecture.

I liked the stroll we had in Central Park. Lots of people playing games and walking, running, riding through. It feels very spacious and calm.

Grab a picnic (or a pre-made sandwich, I'm not judging) and go eat your lunch here. It's gorgeous, and a nice break from the concrete jungle.

A stroll through the park will transport you out of the city. Family picnics, ball playing, bike riding, music, beautiful flowers and greenery. If you're coming in the warm weather be sure to bring a blanket so you can bask in the sun, and picnic...More
