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

What do you do in a big city with limited space for a park? High Line Park is the answer. This repurposing of an unused rail line is beautiful and innovative. At the time I walked the whole length, but the park has been extended since then.

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.

Great trail, great views, an urban gem for New Yorkers (I'm from MD). My only complaint is that a number of riders ignore the signs saying "go slow, be courteous" and ride like they are racing, some in packs. This would be ok if the trail were not so crowded. The trail is not terribly wide and often must accommodate walkers, strollers, etc and the bikers are going dangerously fast. This should not keep you from trying this trail, it is great, but be mindful of these racers.

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.

Got there by 7p for the Friends of the High Line tour. Enjoyed Francesca's history of the High Line. It's my first time doing the tour and 3 time on the High Line.
