Be sure to take one of the walking tours in beautiful Central Park. The tour guides are volunteers and our did a super job of describing the history of the park and several of the buildings. The tours are free and well worth the time

We visited with two teenagers and a 7 year old. Very relaxing wander through and then to sit in the sun and relax while the kids enjoyed one of the well maintained playgrounds. The park is kept clean and is a pleasant way to spend time. The horse and carriages a bit of a put off, but others seemed to enjoy. Don’t visit New York without spending some time here.

Unfortunately we only got to see the southern quarter of the Park, but I will be back to see more. Beautiful, clean and peaceful. You don't feel like you are in the middle of NYC and the millions of people. Sit and people watch or hit the fountains, statues, bridges and Strawberry Fields. There's a surprise around every turn and over every hill.

This park is a must. Don't miss the boat house where you can get a bite to eat or grab a sandwich at a local deli and enjoy a picnic on the grounds.

We had such a great time in the park...the landscape is lovely with plenty of paths to meander down. Around every corner you see something new...a pond, a performer, a statue (the Alice in Wonderland statue is particularly fun), or just pretty scenery. A great place to spend an afternoon.
