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
Was my first visit to NY! I’m 60 & had wanted to go to Central Park since I was a kid, had a great time walking through the park! The carriage ride was the best carriage ride I’d ever taken anywhere! I hope if DeBlasio still plans to take the carriage rides away that he rethinks it! One day I’ll return to NY & look forward to another carriage ride! Nice that citizens like Liam Neeson have some backbone to voice their opinion & support the people who provide the carriage rides, our guide was very good & made our ride the best part of my vacation!
on arrival the staff were friendly and very efficient, the bikes were good quality, any extras were given immediately for instance a basket for bags, lock and key and helmet. it was approx 5 minute walk to Central Park, I didn’t feel confident enough to ride there in the traffic, but as I say not a long walk at all, After an enjoyable cycle round the park we took our bikes back and again the staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend them.
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.
Meeting place was a little unclear for first timers in NYC but once we met up our pedicab person was the perfect guide and knowledgable, funny, personable. My friend and I found this to be one of our favorite activities that we did on our 3 day visit to the city. We are small town people on a first trip. this was a highlight and much of that due to our guide.
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.
