Tips

  • Did you know? To create that feeling of being in the countryside, and not in the middle of a city, the four Transverse Roads were sunken down eight feet below the parks surface.
  • Visit Cherry Hill in late afternoon, walk across Bow Bridge over to the Ramble and watch the sun set over the Westside.
  • See Central Park on the cover of the April 1, 2013 issue of The New Yorker, plus a slideshow of Art Deco covers from the 1920s:
  • Home to some of New York's most famous concerts. Diana Ross literally singing in the rain, Simon & Garfunkel, Garth Brooks and Dave Matthews Band have all played Central Park.
  • Winter Jam 2013 in Central Park
  • check out strawberry fields.
  • I comforted Dutchess Elba here, the day she learned of her husband's affair with the daughter of an Italian tire magnate. I cut our time short, for fear of being involved in yet another royal scandal.
  • "Central Park takes up roughly 843 acres of land. To give you an idea, thats roughly 16 billion NY apartments." - Conan O'Brien
  • Lots of squirrels in the park!
  • Enjoy then park in style, then shop Fashion's Night Out! Head over to our store on 731 Lex Ave & (s)hop a bus around town! Enjoy 30% off your favorite item from 6pm - 11pm & other surprises!
  • Take a romantic stroll around The Reservoir at sunset or explore the North Woods. #vday
  • Wander and take in the wilderness. When youve tired yourself out, plop down alongside the picturesque Loch (midpark between 102nd and 103rd Sts), a narrow stream dotted with five waterfalls.
  • Love my park. I've been taking 6 mile walks around Central Park 3 times a week. Sheep's Meadow is a great place to hang out for a picnic. Tavern on the Green is an awesome spot to grab a drink.
  • Find a rock and sit :)
  • Did you know? The Park got its initial start in 1853, but the Central Park was not officially opened until the winter of 1859.
  • Grab your skates and head to Laser Rink in the park's northern section. Open late on Fridays & Saturdays.
  • In order to decide who would design the Park, the Central Park Commission held the countrys first landscape design contest. The Greensward Plan, by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won.
  • How nice it is for New York City to have such a great place to walk and relax. We also get to have our own Zoo and special fountains!!! Th... TripAdvisor user on Jan 8, 2012. Read more reviews at
  • PHOTO: 1975 was the last year the New York City marathon was raced entirely inside Central Park. In this photo, runners at the marathon starting line.
  • Places to Run: NYCs most famous park is also a year-round haven for runners. Pick a trail, loop or traverse, run around its entire 6-mile perimeter, or opt for a 1.58 mile run at the reservoir.
