Central Park, a huge rectangular slice of oxygenating greenness, is New York City's lungs and soul. Taking up a mammoth 843 acres (341 hectares) in Uptown Manhattan, Central Park is laced with walkways, jogging paths, and woodlands.

Not just a place for relaxation, Central Park is also home to a zoo, skating rink, theater, reservoir, boating lake, fountains, bridle paths, and a carousel. If you’re feeling peckish after all that activity, drop into the Loeb Boathouse for a buffet brunch or dinner.

Popular photo stops in Central Park include the Alice in Wonderland and Balto the Malamute statues, the Belvedere Castle atop Vista Rock and the John Lennon memorial gardens at Strawberry Fields, opposite Lennon’s former home in the Dakota apartment building.

Practical Info

Central Park runs north from 59th Street to W 110th Street, bordered by Central Park West and Fifth Avenue. Walking, cycling and taking a horse-drawn carriage ride are the best ways to explore Central Park. Popular strolls include North Meadow and Bethesda Terrace.

The Central Park Visitor Center is at the Dairy, near 65th Street. If you’re entering the park from the south, the closest subways are 5th Avenue and Columbus Circle.
