Beautiful place
Oct. 2021
It is amazing that this beautiful park is in the middle of a bustling city. We had a lovely time but would have appreciated more signs. We were riding bikes and found the signage on the roads to be lacking.

Life's Breath
Oct. 2021
The park is fabulous as a source of relaxation in its very varied trails. The site never disappoints: there are owners with their dogs, skaters, salsa classes in the open air, and people sleeping on the grass. There is a truly beautiful atmosphere that squirrels, trees and birds perfect. My wife and I had the privilege of going in the fall and the visual spectacle of the burning leaves is a feast.

Relaxing

Quite and relaxing. After walking for a while, we rented bikes to get to the other side of the park quicker. Bike streets were great!

Always get a tour guide
Oct. 2021 • Family
I suggest that you get a tour guide, ones that are on bikes not Pony driven, you're tour guide can point out your surroundings and special interest

Beautiful and Worth a Trip or Two!
Oct. 2021
I couldn't believe that you're actually still in the heart of the city when you enter this park. It's beautiful and feels like an oasis in the heart of the city. The hike up to the castle is definitely worth the trip. The view from the top is like a painting.

Lovely in the Fall
Oct. 2021
so nice to see so many families in the park, walking dogs and celebrating children's birthdays. Everything was lush and green.

A nice park
Sep. 2021
If you want to visit one park in Manhattan, this is the one.
It has lakes, bridges, statues, It's nice to walk around, enjoy nature and relax. It can take a couple hours or a whole day to walk around the park depending on your interest. The park is beautiful, much bigger than other city parks I have been to.
If you are a tourist and press on time, especially if you are from countryside, you can skip it.

There is no admission fee to Central Park
Oct. 2021 • Couples
I'm annoyed that the listing implies you need to pay admission. Central Park is free. Trip Advisor, you give me no way to address this issue with you.
