The Basics

Central Park has something for everyone. Visit Bethesda Fountain, the Strawberry Fields monument, or the Alice in Wonderland statue; enjoy kid-friendly fun on the carousel at the Central Park Zoo; sail model boats at the Conservatory Water pond; or simply enjoy people-watching at Bethesda Terrace or Sheep Meadow. The park’s size can be overwhelming, so consider a park bike tour, a walking tour, or a pedicab tour for a guided experience. Bike rentals are also available for those who prefer to explore on their own.

Great way to see Central Park. Jon and his horse Strawberry impressed our twin 11 year olds. He pointed out locations were movies and tv programs were filmed and stopped to take pictures of us. A pleasant break in a busy week. We would definitely recommend.

Central Park Walking Tour
This was a great way to experience Central Park. Michael did an amazing job explaining everything to our group, learning a little bit about us, and sharing the amazing history of the park. In my point of view the best way to see the park is by foot. The group was small only 7 of us and the stroll through the park didn’t feel rushed or hurried it was just a great stroll with a knowledgeable guide. It also felt good to support a small business owner like Michael.

Central Park Walking Tour
First time walking Central Park without being lost. Michael shared so many good details with us. It was a nice walk but be ready to walk for more than 2h. The weather was amazing so this helped. We loved the tour.

How to Get There

Central Park is bordered by 59th Street, Central Park West, 110th Street, and Fifth Avenue, making it reachable on foot from many Manhattan neighborhoods. Otherwise, hop off the subway at Columbus Circle or Fifth Avenue to enter the park from the south, where you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride to explore via a traditional form of transportation.

When to Get There

The park is open daily from 6am to 1am. It’s a can’t-miss attraction at any time of year, but to enjoy a classic New York City activity such as ice skating at Wollman Rink or watching a performance of Shakespeare in the Park, you’ll want to visit during the appropriate season (winter and summer, respectively).

On the other side of the park, you’ll find the American Museum of Natural History.
