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!

My Sunday place for peace and bit of walk (which I need). Cant review as a tourist but this is home for me and is biased. Maintained well and peaceful.

All of us non New Yorkers have seen Central Park in the movies or on TV, but there is nothing like experiencing the special place for yourself. Don’t miss it if you’re in NYC

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.
