So beautiful and special. Loved it. Go to The Boat House for a drink such a nice afternoon. The fountain is great and so are all the sitting areas. Goes for miles.

Absolutely must visit! I spent days exploring Central Park... my best tip, make sure you visit the bathroom before entering.. while there are bathrooms.. sometimes they are not easy to find.

Loved it then, but got to explore it further this time, on a walking tour. Suggest tour (for knowledge) but also do it independently to soak up the true atmosphere of the park.

Huge!!! Very pretty. Would love to come back in the fall when colors are changing. Took a pedi cab around the park. Stopped at Strawberry Fields, Bow Bridge, the Carosuel and Bethesda Fountain.

It is hard to imagine such a lovely and relaing place right smack in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of New York City. Strawberry Fields is so pretty and I could have spent the entire day there reading and watching the people.

Thank Bo C
