Great place to be in the Spring ans Summer

Did you know this was a man made park? This is a great place to be all seasons of the year but none more so than the first signs of spring. After a long brutal winter, getting out to enjoy the sun, smell the trees, and hear the bird chirps is one of the few places in nyc where you get your mind at ease. Try biking Central park on a bike and you will discover so much more!

Responding to the Dog-Friendly NY List

I just adore Central Park. I could go well beyond the limit of characters, but I'm writing in response to the ""Dog-Friendly NY"" list recently posted on CitySearch. The caption to CP is that owners can ""show off"" their dogs around w. 79th street and CPW in the afternoon. Do NOT do this. It is illegal to have your dog off leash anywhere in the park after 9am or before 9pm. The ticket/fine for violating this is worse than a parking ticket in Midtown!

Also, keep an eye out for dogs that are off leash that shouldn't be. It's the reason I only take my dog to the park for off-leash time around 6am and, even then, we go uptown toward the North Woods (where it is more isolated and quiet).

Great place to hang out in the summer

A great park that streches from 2-3 miles long. Lots of fun indoor and outdoor activities there. Museams are on both sides of the park. NYC only greatest nature other than Washington Square Park and Bryant Park. I ride my bike and scooter here often. Sounds of nature are great. Theres a lake, a castle, and near gracie mansion. I saw a frankie valleya nd the four seasons concert here. It was rocking awesome oldies. Large crowds. They have shows, concerts, quartets in rain or shine. Lots of entertainment. They have a zoo a pond and a piece of african wildlife seriously for real. It's like a mini forest. Very earthy and green, somewhat educational. Many school and camp trips come here. there are places to shop and eat or bring you own picnic!!!!!!!! It borders colombus circle to thesouth a busy area, near an upscale mall. People of all kinds, tours, celebrities, and people from all walks of life arrive here. Transportation is very easy.

good work out place

I love jogging at Central Park every Saturday. This park is large enough for me to jog for several hours in the morning. It is the place I work out the most in my life. I find Central Park to be a better place to work out than the gym that I used to go. First, Central Park is free. Second, it is not as crowded as the gym. Third, instead of smelling other people?s sweat in the gym, you can get some fresh air at the park. I also enjoy fishing at Central Park. I find it funny to fish in the middle of Manhattan but I am just too lazy to go somewhere far since I live a few blocks from Central Park. There are so many things that you can do and explore at Central Park. I strongly recommend everyone to visit Central Park but not too many as I don?t want it to be as crowded as the gym.

New York City's heart--and lungs

Contrary to what many may think, Central Park is not a sanctuary of untouched nature, but a meticulously engineered man-made park where even water currents are controlled by mechanical valves. The big rocks seen on the surface are pretty much its only untouched component. This only adds to the beauty of it, though. Central Park is a real work of art, and many of the views were actually conceptualized by artists and later materialized in one of the world's most famous parks. The sheer contrast between the skyscrapers and all that green is something that one cannot find easily. Make sure to do more than walk around and check the attractions, such as the zoo, the boathouse, and the Bethesda fountain--you will certainly recognize them from dozens of movies.

What a gem

Kudos to the planners of Manhattan for thinking of this truly amazing haven amid the cement caverns of the city. Please go, walk a bit and appreciate the size, if anything else, of this great park.

Central Park Christmas

My wife and I first saw Central Park on Christmas Day 2002 right after the snowfall. Our jaws dropped at just how awesome it looked with fresh snow. We can't wait to come back to visit NYC in the Spring and see the Park with all its greenery. It is without a doubt the most impressive park that we've ever seen.
