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.

Beautiful park and world famous. The park is absolutely massive and would recommend you take at least half a day to walk through just some of the many paths the park has on offer. Amazingly calm place to be in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of America’s biggest city!!
I usually spend a good four hours here. I absolutely love jogging on a nice Saturday and get my five miles in. I even ran into my favorite fashion designer Carolina Herrera one day! You never know who is hanging at this maze of a park. I love NY!
