This is an incredible park! You can keep to main roads or go off the main tracks though more dense trees and it gets seriously beautiful and wild!! Totally unexpected but this might be my favourite park in New York. Saw lots of bird life and animals going about their day which added to the magic.

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...

Beautiful, fun, great people-watching. Hill is challenging for running or cycling.

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.

This is my daily trail run! What I love most about this loop is its variety: beautiful trees and foliage, sweeping views of the lake and fields, a mix of ups and downs, and plenty of water fountains along the way. March / April is the best time of year to visit, when snow drops, daffodils and crocus bloom all along the path.

A nice long loop, all paved with some incline. I wouldn’t call it an easy run.

Great place to walk the dogs. In the winter there is music from the ice skating rink!

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.

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.

Staten Island Greenbelt White Trail starting on Victory Blvd to Hylan Blvd and ending in great Kills park. This was a fun enjoyable 7 mile hike thru the Staten Island Greenbelt. The upper parts between Willowbrrok park, Latourette and the ravine are the most secuded and enjoyable of the White trail. The lower section are very close to roads so you will hear cars going by. You can continue another 1.5 miles to the very end of Great Kills park if you wanted to make this an 8.5 mile hike. We parked one car in Great Kills park and then drove to Willowbrook park to start our hike.

Great family place!!
