Central Park is a beautiful green oasis in the centre of New York.

It was so much more beautiful than I expected. We were there in spring, there were flowers everywhere, the grass was green and sun was shining.

We walked through the middle of the park, past the fabulous old Carousel, and we were amazed by the hundreds of people who where relaxing on the lawns, soaking up the sun.

We also enjoyed a fabulous lunch and some wine at the bar by the boat house in the centre of the park (see tip under Restaurants).

Central Park is such a contrast to the rest of the city, and a perfect place to relax after a hard morning of site seeing or shopping.
