Central Park is New York’s backyard, with a lush 843-acre patch of nature, including a lake, in the middle of Manhattan. This is one of the city’s biggest attractions and greatest assets, enjoyed by tourists and used by locals year-round. Countless scenes from movies and TV shows have been filmed here over the years.
The park is home to scenic hills, meadows, playgrounds, skating rinks, ball fields, and many well-known attractions, including Strawberry Fields, Belvedere Castle, and the Central Park Zoo. Be warned; the park is huge. The best way to explore it is to stop by the visitor centre and pick up a map showing the various attractions and things to do, and then plan out a walking route or take a tour.
