  • Best park in the world. You can spend days and hours here and every time you walk through it’s a new experience. Love grabbing breakfast and coffee and taking a walk. Sometimes through the Rambles and sometimes by Strawberry Fields. Love people watching and love watching the rowers on the lake. Beautiful scenery and perfect picture taking.
  • Hands down, one of the best parks that I've ever been to. Central Park is not only big but also that something for everyone. I love to just walk around and take in the sights. It's a beautiful park with lots of activities and many scenic spots that are just simply breathtaking. It brings me back to many scenes I've seen in movies. Central Park is definitely a must when I visit.
