Central Park

Central Park West to Fifth Avenue, 59th Street to 110th Street
New York City, NY 10022

This enormous slice of wilderness–843 acres, to be exact–in the city's midst was the first artificially landscaped park in the United States. In addition to vast stretches of greenery, ponds and lakes perfect for escaping the crowds on foot or by bike, there are plenty of ways to join in the fun. Summerstage features top international names in popular live music; the Zoo is one of the Country’s best-known; a traditional amusement park and Victorian Gardens promise more classic fun for families; and activities for dogs and their owners are seemingly endless.
