Countless Recreational Opportunities at Central Park NY
This tour is FREE!
Features: A National Historic Landmark since 1963, Central Park NY is the most visited park in the United States. Here you will find numerous cultural festivals, countless recreational activities, and remarkable works of art. Central Park NY is also home to the Central Park Zoo and the Delacorte Theatre, where Public Theater's acclaimed Shakespeare productions are held.
Why We Go: Because of its large size, Central Park NY is able to offer a near-endless array of activities. New York natives and newcomers alike will enjoy basking on the grass in the shade of a tree, people-watching and admiring the wildlife.
- Public Theater Productions: Each year, the Public Theater puts on an open-air production at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park NY. The productions are phenomenal and the performers first-rate; in 2010, Academy Award-winner Al Pacino starred as Shylock in William Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, and in 2009 Six Feet Under's Lauren Ambrose starred as Ophelia in Shakespeare's Hamlet.
- Recreational Opportunities: While perfect for long, leisurely strolls, Central Park NY also offers numerous recreational opportunities, including tennis courts, skating rinks, swimming pools, baseball fields, trails for hiking and horseback riding, and boat rentals for boating. You'll never be short on things to do in Central Park.
- Fall Foliage: One of the best times to check out Central Park NY is in the fall, when the leaves have begun to change. You'll see Central Park as you've never seen it before, painted in vibrant yellows, reds, and greens.
Inside Knowledge: Central Park NY originally opened in 1857, on 770 acres of city-owned land. Between 1858 and 1873, the park was improved and expanded by the design team of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Now 874 acres, Central Park is managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the New York City government.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Birdwatch: Birdwatching fans will want to check out the wooded section of NYC Central Park known as "The Ramble," where many species of woodland birds, especially warblers, may be seen in spring and fall.
- Do Go for a Ride: Those interested in seeing the sights in Central Park will enjoy a carriage or a pedicab ride. The pedicab is more efficient, covering three to ten times the distance of a traditional horse carriage ride; the horse carriage ride, however, is more romantic, having been featured in classic NYC films.
- Don't Miss the Swedish Cottage: The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre, located in Central Park, offers marionette productions by master puppet makers and puppeteers. Past productions have included Hansel and Gretel, Gulliver's Travels, Sleeping Beauty, and Alice in Wonderland.
- Don't Forget the Kids: Children will enjoy Central Park every bit as much as adults. We recommend taking them to the Central Park Carousel, which, as one of the largest merry-go-rounds in the United States, features 58 hand-carved horses and two chariots made by Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein in 1908.
