Just beautiful, I have walked most the the lower part of the park many times when I come to the city and there's always something interesting to see. The lakes are fabulous. The little zoo is so cute and the clock that has all the moving parts is also very interesting. You really just have to take some time and get away from the hustle and bustle and just go into the park and relax and walk around and really sightsee. People on the paddle boats. . Peaceful and pretty you really got to go and see it.

I was just at the Bethesda Terrace and was harnessed a someone painted as the Statue of Liberty because i only gave him $3 to take a picture with him. He never said there was a charge and insisted I give him $5! Since when did the park become the new Times Square. I won't be going back.

I did the Heart of the Park walking tour on Aug 23/16 with Merle who was fabulous. The weather had let up a bit so it was quite comfortable. It was a full 2 hours and although I had walked Central Park numerous times, it was great to learn so much about the park. We saw loads, learned lots and because it's put on by the Conservancy, there is no charge and they don't accept tips but you can feel good about yourself and contribute the $10 to $20 (or sometimes $40) that you could have paid for a tour & give it to those whose mandate is to keep this gem available to everyone. Well done folks, well done. I would love to do another Central Park Walking Tour with the conservancy next time I'm in NYC! Thanks Merle.

Such a beautiful place. This is one of the top spots in NYC for weddings by the way (specially during spring time). You will get to see interesting monuments from different Shakespeare plays, beautiful plants and flowers, and instagram ready stairs. Pro tip: for awesome pics, get your subject above the stairs (top) and from below (right side) you can take awesome shoots of your subject surrounded by plants and the whole view of the stairs.
