Beautiful experience with my boyfriend, the music is really good on the rink, it’s really easy to get in and out from tickets to getting your boots, and the view whilst you are skating is amazing!

It's a massive park for sure but given that I was there in February, all the leaves were gone. Still it was a really nice stroll. There were people strolling, jogging and walking their dogs. It would have been a beautiful sight during the summer....More

Spent pretty much the full day strolling Central Park. Stopped at the Boat House for a refreshment break. Very relaxing with entertaining buskers, conversations with strangers. Just a really nice day.

It’s big, beautiful, famous and still striking. It is difficult to explain how good it feels after some days in this incredibly intense city to walk through this park. It’s a testy to the City planners and everything that is good with NY.

It will be cold. Also make sure that you and your guests have excellent directions to the Cove and that they will need to walk there, probably from the West 72d Street entrance.
