We actually did the whole loop and it eventually took 4 hours and about 6 miles. Wonderful. Pick up a map at Columbus Circle for $2 to keep track of the different sights. The lady also gave us good info such as the waterfalls in the northeast corner. Have a bite at the boathouse. Take water bottle and you can fill up. A must do if you are in NY.

Beautiful! Crowded but a large, well-kept Park with lakes, flowers, rocks, trees, botanical garden, fort, and zoo!

Very easy, but nice views of the park

Especially nice during spring and fall.

Kinda hard to navigate I kept ending up on the road running path

Simply for the historic value... 25 yrs ago during a heat wave in the beginning of April. Two days later the heaviest snow storm of the year...

A great walk

Very cold this morning, but the hike was great. Lots of dogs out enjoying the snow. The start/finish is at the Museum of Natural History...so you can make a day of it by also exploring the museum before or after the hike.

Good running area, never crowded. Uneven surface, but well maintained for most of it .

Beautiful park and lots of activities to do.
Have seen the Belvedere castle , fountain and the boats lake.

not enough memes

Always a great spot to visit. Plenty to do.

Wonderful park. Huge area, offering lots of walk options and activities. Especially beautiful in April when the cherry trees are blossoming. Great fountains.

So much to see in this park. Very enjoyable for a nice stroll and Belvedere Castle is a hidden gem.

Well maintained, highly traveled Park in Manhattan with unique areas and topography that everyone knows. I went through the park on a carriage once and walked the whole park on another trip.

We were actually in Central Park this past Saturday (6.3.17) to participate in YAI's Central Park Challenge to support people with disabilities. It was a great day. The park is a substantial size to enjoy a walk and the inter city garden. Good environment for the young and old to walk, bike ride, visit zoo or do a bit of model boat sailing.

If you do not want to do the whole thing you should look at the Central Park website and do the highlights I have done it is pretty!!!

Great family place!!

This looks like the horse trail that starts parallel to the reservoir. If it is then its flat loose gravel and NO BIKE RIDING IS ALLOWED.

The very North of the Park still all woods except the Park's end at 110th. The North Wood's house the Box House an old fort. You take actual wooded trails through it. A couple spots allow for serious rock climbing. The North Woods encompass the area between 105th and 110th Streets on the Western half of the Park. The area should be avoided at night.
