We had a party of 5 and hired two rickshaws for an hour tour of the the park, The drivers were very entertaining and informative. Pay the extra money for the longer tour-it is well worth it and you can see much more of the...More
Love love love this place. We spent most of Sunday walking around this tranquil spot - definite highlight of our trip.
We even got to see our first raccoon - though I almost approached it after initially mistaking it for a dog!
Central Park is New York City's front yard, a space to be human in a City that often frustrates the longing for outdoors and nature. It is an amazing collection of spaces which offers privacy and companionship, wild spaces and manicured greens, recreation and relaxation....More
You are never alone in Central Park and people watching is part of the fun. There is always something around the next bend and it’s a lovely way to while away part of a day. Lots of people hustling tours/bikes/pedicabs/buggy rides at the entrances. Holiday...More
Road/track running all round the park with a dedicated two directional lane for runners/joggers. About 10-12k for the full lap but various options to use other paths for smaller variations as required.

I live across the street from the Park and spend as much time there as I can. The good news is that from your perspective any amount of time in the Park makes sense. You can’t see the entire park and experience all that it has to offer in on day, but at the same time an hour walk in the Park is a worthwhile experience. The amount of time you spend in the Park obviously depends on your other priorities. Two thoughts: combine a visit to the Park with a visit to either the MET, AMNH, or Harlem; WALK, do not take a horse drawn carriage or pedicab. I know some posters say that they love the ride, but the fact is that the rides are restricted to a few roads from which you can see very little.
