“Surprisingly different to what I expected. Great place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

No matter how many movies have featured Central Park, I was not expecting what I found. It was truly amazing. A totally beautiful place to be right in the middle of Manhattan Island. Huge rock formations jutting out of the ground, acres of grass and pathways and well laid out food and facilities.
Well worth a visit, for as long as you can.

“Lovely for a wander!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Central Park gives NY the much needed bit of greenary. It stretches for miles and miles, with fountains, a zoo, cafe's and statues. In particular I loved the Lewis Carrol Statue and the small zoo is sweet.

Head there early in the morning before the tourists arrive and have fun watching the dog walkers and joggers!

“A littlle heaven in a building hell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Central park is a great place for NY city, which is full of high buildings that do not let you see the sky. You can spend a whole day there. You can have a walk, or lay on the grasses, listen to the musicians, etc. You can feel the nature there.

“A most unique refuge in the world's greatest city. Wonderful for romance, exercise or just contemplating the universe.”

Not to mention, there is no better spot for people watching and eating lunch on a Sunday afternoon.

“Love Central Park anytime of the Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Walking through the park brings many quaint discoveries, the duck pond with the Plaza hotel in the backdrop. The skating rink where small children have their competitions and the lovely horse drawn carriages passing by. It is a romantic little walk and you can go on and on, through the zoo and the small playground areas to the MET. Enjoy CP immensely.
