I had seen a documentary about the park and its designer called Fredrick Law Olmsted:Designing America on PBS a few weeks before my visit. It is archived on PBS and makes a good free watch before you go if time permits. It is part of the always masterful American Master's series, and the first part of the hour long feature is about the park. The bridges, fountains, boat ponds, and pathways are great. Each bridge seems to have its own musician. When we were there, there was an aids run.

Great place to visit if you want a piece of nature in a big city! Lots of nice scenery, walking areas and pet-friendly environments can be found. There's also a zoo and some museums/information places where one can learn, which is great for the family. Also a good place for dates, with all the benches, ponds and trees making it look quite lovely/romantic when there aren't too many people walking by and/or screaming... Overall will take a good day to see everything, but be wary that a lot of the activities will need money. There are bathrooms throughout the park.

Central Park is an experience of its own. The walking paths are nice and wide. Check out the carousel, the horses are all hand carved. One fun fact is that the Trump organization owns the lease to the carousel, I am really surprised he hadn’t put his name on it. You could spend an easy day at the park, with all there is to do and see. They also have a fine zoo.

Beautiful, well kept park. We saw the volunteers working to keep the place in good condition on our walk through. There are musicians playing live music so take a few coins/bills to give them when you pass them by - they are brilliant to listen to. We were surprised by the size of the park. It is easy to spend a whole day wandering from artist to statue to pond to tree. And it's free to enter.

Lots and lots of space. A lot of great rocks for climbing and taking pictures. I will definitely get a bicycle next time I'm at the park. It was really nice to walk along the water too. There were people walking their dogs. People on horseback which was amazing to see!! And some pretty Interesting bridges.
