New York's most celebrated park is a favorite among locals looking to jog, sun-bathe, walk the dog, and a lot more besides, but it boasts an array of attractions to keep tourists and families happy too! Here are five highlights.
The Lake is the scenic location of so many landmarks that no visitor should miss rowing its waters past the Bethesda Fountain, Wagner Cove, and beneath the Bow Bridge.
As well as the main Central Park Zoo and Children's Zoo, there's the Hallett Nature Sanctuary. You can't visit the latter alone, but check online for guided tour schedules!

What people are saying about Central Park
My wife and I enjoyed every minute of the 2 hour tour.. it was at our pace and Lyall also volunteered to take our pics :) . I definitely recommend tours with him. Lyall is well informed about the history of the park.
A wonderful experience. We are only in New York for a short time - this tour could not have been better and has made us want to come back for more! Our tour guides depth of knowledge, giving an insider's perspective and small intimate group image this tour wonderful.
The park ranger that approached Emily and our carriage at Strawberry Fields was arrogant a$$. Emily handled him in a professional manner!!
Great value! Informative, easy and did what it says on the tin. The guide (Lyle) was knowledgable and friendly. No rush and I doubt it would tax even the less fit. I would recommend this wholeheartedly!
4 of us took the tour together around central park. 2 people in each pedicab. Victor had the microphone so he narrated the trip as they cycled together. The trip was totally enjoyable, the weather was cold but beautiful and crisp. The 2 hours flew by. We really got a feel for the park and the pleasure it provides to so many. Recognised many locations from movies but didn't bump into anyone of interest ! would highly recommend this to anyone vusiting NYC.
