In the midst of all of the city's concrete and high-rises, Central Park brings greenery and shady places for relaxation--as well as a zoo, carousel, skating rink, theater, and several fountains--to the northern part of the city. Stroll, bike, picnic, or people-watch among 341 hectares (843 acres) of lakes, jogging paths, woodlands, walkways, lawns, and trees. One of the country's major historical landmarks, the park hosts frequent concert, plays, and art shows. Stop by the Alice in Wonderland statue, a favorite place for photos. Put Central Park and other New York City attractions into our New York City journey builder app, and watch your holiday take shape.
Central Park reviews
I love walking through Central Park! I take off my headphones and just take in all the great Park of NY has to offer. It calms my soul. I'm always in a good mood when I come out of the park! A great place for many different things to do! My favorite, picnics!!
Central Park is a nice and very calming place to get away from the noisy and busy city. It does not only offer nice entertainment like forest-like pathways, outdoor concerts, and great food but great views of the city. Walking through the park will even make you forget you that you are in the busiest city in the country.
