Central Park, New York City: 406 reviews and 745 photos


Central Park is the largest urban park in the world. Situated in the heart of NYC, it extends north from 59th street to 110th street. And it spans east to west from 5th avenue to Central Park West. A total of 843 Acres. Within are numerous expanses of green as well as skating rinks, boat ponds and ball fields. There is also the Central Park Zoo and acres of woodland home to myriad species of birds. Also the Shakepeare Theater, where during the summer months, outdoor shows can be seen.

Throughout the park are numerous jogging and walking trails for one to enjoy. The scope of outdoor activities seems nearly endless. In addition, there are muscians to listen to and statues to see.

However, the park is also potentially dangerous at night, especially in isolated areas. So dont walk alone. The park is a great place to enjoy, away from the hustle and bustle.

Photo is one of the many old bridges found in the park.
